    Permitting/Regulatory Guidance - Guide/Handbook: FERC Handbook for Hydroelectric Project Licensing and 5 MW Exemptions from Licensing Permitting/Regulatory GuidanceGuide/Handbook Abstract This handbook outlines the requirements for hydropower licenses issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.   In-stream hydrokinetic projects must be licensed or exempted from licensing by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”). FERC’s extensive licensing regime is the framework within.

    FERC issues two original licenses for small hydro projects By Elizabeth Ingram | The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently issued original operating licenses for two small hydro projects: 6-MW Opekiska Lock and Dam Hydroelectric and 5-MW Morgantown Lock and Dam Hydroelectric. The more pertinent regulations that permit FERC to require a licensee to acquire or protect lands around a hydro project follow: a Lands for Recreation CFR This regulation states that: "reasonable expenditures by a licensee for public recreational development pursuant to an approved plan, including the purchase of land, will be.

    The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is giving notice of a new policy on establishing license terms for hydroelectric projects. In this Policy Statement, the Commission adopts a year default license term for original and new licenses for hydropower projects .   The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission recently adopted a year default license term for hydropower projects at nonfederal dams. While there is more that FERC could do to ease hydro licensing.

Calendar No. 93 th Congress Report SENATE 1st Session _____ FERC VOLUNTARY LICENSING OF HYDROELECTRIC PROJECTS ON FRESH WATERS IN THE STATE OF HAWAII _____ April 27 (legislative day, April 24), Ordered to be printed _____ Mr.

Murkowski, from the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, submitted the following R E P O R T [To accompany S. Licenses are for a to year period. A license conveys the right of eminent domain.

The commission has three licensing processes. A potential developer of hydroelectric project must file an application for license or exemption from licensing if the project is or will be: located on a navigable waterway of the U.S.

A FERC license is the primary regulatory document that authorizes the use of public waters for electricity generation, and is required for projects located in state and off-shore federal waters.

It specifies the conditions and legal responsibilities for construction, operation, and maintenance of the project. Small/Low Impact Hydropower Projects Under the Federal Power Act (FPA), FERC regulates the nation's non-federal hydropower resources. FERC issues three types of development authorizations: conduit exemptions, megawatt (MW) exemptions, and licenses.

A license is a regulatory document that permits the dam owner to use public waters for energy generation. It specifies the conditions for construction, operation, and maintenance of the project.

When final, a license is enforceable by FERC or the U.S. District Court through fines or injunction. The Commission's responsibilities include: Issuance of licenses for the construction of a new project; Issuance of licenses for the continuance of an existing project (relicensing); and Oversight of all ongoing project operations, including dam safety inspections and environmental monitoring.

[United States. Congress. Senate. Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.]. Purpose of the Measure S. precludes the voluntary licensing of hydroelectric projects on fresh waters in the State of Hawaii.

Background and Need Part I of the Federal Power Act was enacted in to establish a ``complete scheme of national regulation which would promote the comprehensive development of the water resources of the Nation.''.

A small hydroelectric project of 10 MW or less may be eligible for a MW exemption. The applicant must propose to install or add capacity to a project located at a non-federal, pre dam, or at a natural water feature.

The project can be located on federal lands but cannot be located at a federal dam. What is Included in the "Project".

FERC licenses a “complete unit of development.” [1] This consists of all dams, reservoirs, other engineered structures, as well as property rights in lands and waters as necessary for construction, operation, and maintenance of a project.

Under Clean Water Act (CWA) SectionFERC may license a hydropower project only if the State where the project discharges certifies that the project will comply with applicable water quality standards. FERC must include in the license any conditions the State requires in order to certify the project.

FERC finalizes expedited licensing process for hydropower projects The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued a final rule establishing an expedited licensing process for original hydropower licenses for certain qualifying facilities at existing non-powered dams and for closed-loop pumped storage projects.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a new policy on establishing licensing terms for hydroelectric projects located at non-federal dams.

FERC issued the policy on Oct. 19, which establishes a year default license term for original and new licenses under FERC jurisdiction. On DecemFERC eliminated the requirement for hydroelectric project licensees to file F which solicited information on the use and development of recreation facilities at FERC-licensed hydropower projects.

FERC also revised Sections and of its regulations to (1) modernize licensee public notice practice, (2) clarify. hydropower projects. As noted in Chapter 1, non-federal projects represent about two-thirds of the hydropower projects operating in the U.S.

(1, of 2, projects). When a license expires for one of these projects, FERC can issue a new license of 30 to 50 years to either the existingFile Size: KB.

FERC Hydropower Licensing and Compliance Management TRC provides a full range of environmental and licensing services to meet Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requirements when licensing a hydroelectric project.

Our services are designed to provide all the expertise required to develop a FERC licensing strategy, conduct field studies.

FERC Process = Counter Cultural •FERC proceedings are litigation from the start •The first point of legal review is the Appellate Court (FERC analogous to a District Cout in developing the record) •FERC is the decision maker & determines if a project is consistent with the Purposes of the.Titles: FERCA (Application for License/Relicense for Water Projects with More than 5 Megawatt (MW) Capacity) and FERC (Small Hydropower Projects and Conduit Facilities including License/Relicense, Exemption, and Qualifying Conduit Facility Determination).

Action: Revisions to information collections FERCA and FERC Late last week, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in the U.S.

proposed to expedite the issuance of original hydropower licenses for certain qualifying facilities at existing non-powered dams and closed-loop pumped storage projects. The process, which is part of the commission’s continuing efforts to implement the America’s Water Infrastructure Act ofis intended to.
