H.R. 2786: To amend the Federal Power Act with respect to the criteria and process to qualify as a qualifying conduit hydropower facility.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2786 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 2786 promotes the development of small conduit hydropower facilities by requiring the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to determine whether a facility meets qualifying small conduit facility criteria within 30 days of receipt of a notice of intent to construct (down from 45 days in current law). The legislation also strikes the five megawatt cap on qualifying conduit hydropower facilities.
