(Sec. 1) This bill amends the Federal Power Act to revise the criteria for a facility to qualify as a qualifying conduit hydropower facility.
Under current law, a hydropower facility must have a capacity that does not exceed five megawatts. This bill eliminates such requirement.
Additionally, the bill revises the time frame from 45 days to 30 days for an entity to contest whether its hydroelectric facility meets the qualifying criteria.
