FERC small hydro Internet webinar to focus on exemptions

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has scheduled another Small/Low Impact Hydropower Webinar for June 22.

FERC conducted previous Internet seminars in November and December 2010 to introduce its new Small/Low Impact Hydropower Program Internet site.

The upcoming webinar, scheduled for noon-1 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time, June 22, is to provide guidance on what types of hydropower projects qualify for conduit exemptions or (maximum) 5-MW exemptions from FERC hydropower licensing. It also is to review the requirements for filing an application for such projects.

The commission said the webinar will provide the opportunity for participants to learn the differences between conduit and 5-MW exemptions and what to do if a project does not qualify for an exemption. In addition, participants are to learn how to get more information and assistance from FERC staff, and to ask questions.

The webinar is open to the public, but advance registration is required. Registration will be open for 30 days. However, previous seminars were filled before the webinar date.

Participants may register on FERC's Internet site via http://www.ferc.gov/EventCalendar/EventDetails.aspx?ID=5823&CalType=%20&CalendarID=116&Date=06/22/2011&View=Listview. 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.
