FERC schedules small hydro Internet webinar

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has scheduled a Small/Low Impact Hydropower Webinar to introduce its new Small/Low Impact Hydropower Program Internet site.

The Internet seminar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern time Nov. 10.

FERC said the purpose of the webinar is to introduce the new Small/Low Impact Hydropower Program Internet site. Agency staff members are to walk participants through all phases of the hydropower licensing and exemption processes using the website.

FERC said the webinar will give participants an opportunity to learn about the small hydro licensing process, find out how to get more information and assistance from FERC, and ask questions.

The new web page, announced in August, is one of the results of a FERC investigation into simplifying the process to obtain small hydropower licenses and exemptions. The web page is designed to guide applicants through the process of selecting a hydro project site, determining if a project is jurisdictional, selecting a FERC licensing process, consulting with stakeholders, and preparing a license or exemption application.

The webinar is open to the public, but advance registration is required. Space is limited to the first 98 reservations.

Participants may register on FERC’s Internet site at https://www.ferc.gov/whats-new/registration/hydro-form-11-10-10.asp. Registrants will receive a confirmation e-mail with information a few days prior to the start of the webinar.

For information, contact Shana Murray, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, (1) 202-502-8333; E-mail: shana.murray@ferc.gov.
