Non-Federal Hydropower Development at Federal Facilities

by Donald A. Giampaoli, Federal Energy Regulatory, Commission, Washington, DC, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Waterpower '85


The opportunities are available for meaningful coordination among hydropower developers, consulting engineers, and Federal, State, and local agencies to promote comprehensive development of hydropower projects at Federal sites. Continued Commission staff coordination and cooperation with Bureau and Corps staff to further refine when necessary the documents cited in this paper result in the best possible utilization of water resources for all public purposes. Commission procedures provide a range of alternatives for developing a hydropower project at a Federal site. The exemption program, however, does not apply to hydropower development at Federal dams or other facilities. Since a preliminary permit is not required to develop a project, the developer may choose to file directly for a license. Procedures for such filings are set forth in the Commission's regulations.
