Ocean Renewable Power Company Maine, LLC Cobscook Bay Tidal Energy Pilot Project, Cobscook Bay in Washington County, Maine

Based on the Final Environmental Assessment, DOE has determined that authorizing the expenditirure of federal funding to ORPC Maine to build, install, operate, and monitor a commercial-scale arry of five grid-connected TidGenTM hydrokinetic energy conversion devices on the sea floor in Cobscook Bay does not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment within the context of NEPA. Therefore, an EIS is not required and DOE is issuing this FONSI.
