The Sandy Hollow Hydroelectric Project in New York

The site was acquired in January 2021 from Davis Hydro, who reported in the early 2000s that was actively producing about 2.2 GWH per year since 1992. Sandy Hollow is a three unit 0.815 MW station on the Indian River in Philadelphia, Jefferson County, New York. It is operated Run-of-River and is currently recruiting Community Net Metering customers who pay a National Grid bill.

The Kilarc Project

The Kilarc Brochure prepared for distribution in mid-2009 provides a brief overview of the application of the KC Hydro approach to our first project that has warranted public attention.

Dick Ely developed an extensive website regarding the project at www.kilarc.info. When the Save Kilarc Committee was convinced that teaming with stakeholders on South Cow Creek to establish a clearly local presence would best prevent loss of Kilarc, website content developed for www.savekilarc.org by KC LLC, a collaboration of Davis Hydro LLC and Sackheim Consulting, was moved and now resides here to supplement content provided at www.kilarc.info

In 2009, the KC Brighton LLC, a Maryland limited liability company was formed and acquired The Brighton Dam Project. Rehabilitation of this project continues as of today. Kelly Sackheim continues to provide services to the project following acquisition of the entire company by original minority shareholder Dick Ely. Presently, Davis Hydro LLC and its principal, Dick Ely, are associates of the KC Hydro family of companies.
