This paper is about a hydroelectric project that was not built. The project is located in Richmond, Virginia on the James River. Project civil works, water rights and adjacent land are owned by the Virginia Electric and Power Company (VEPCO). VEPCO commissioned the Energy Law Institute (ELI) to study its proposed redevelopment of the Twelfth Street Project. The paper addresses the salient issues that emerged from the ELI study. These issues were the multiple uses of the James, methods to accommodate these uses, the bearing of federal and state regulation on the development process and project economics.
