House Passes Bill to Expand Hydropower

The Hydropower Policy Modernization Act (H.R. 3043) passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 257-166. This bill would streamline the hydropower relicensing process by allowing FERC to extend preliminary 4-year permits for hydropower projects and require FERC to establish a process for setting a schedule for a licensing review.

H.R. 3043 “gives licensees the incentive to invest in technological upgrades to a licensed project and to undertake environmental measures beyond the requirements of the existing license – all in an environmentally-sensitive manner,” said Avista Corp. in a letter of support.
