Commissioner Kelly's statement on Finavera Renewables Ocean Energy, Ltd.

  • I am very pleased with the progress reported today, which now allows the Makah Bay Project to move forward.


  • I believe that we would not be at this point today without the level of cooperation and coordination among the stakeholders, and I thank them for their efforts.


  • In particular, I commend the State of Washington for demonstrating leadership in not only promoting the development of hydrokinetic projects, but doing what it takes to make these projects a reality.


  • In addition to its timely actions to date on the Makah Bay Project, the State of Washington is also currently discussing the development of a Memorandum of Understanding with our staff, which would facilitate the development of hydrokinetic projects in Washington state waters.


  • I am pleased with these developments. The Makah Bay Project should be held as a model for how stakeholders can work together to timely develop these important new sources of renewable energy.
