Federal Small Hydropower Regulation

With simplification of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Bureau of reclamation Lease of Power Privilege, small hydro-power is potentially much less burdensome to develop.  This reduction in federal oversight may improve the economic feasibility of certain types of projects, particularly those with existing civil infrastructure (e.g. irrigation, municipal water diversions, wastewater treatment).  This E3A Technical Short will summarize these national changes and allow for discussion.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
