Report: Act 165 Report: A Report to the Vermont General Assembly on Progress toward an MOU Program for Expediting Development of Small and Micro Hydroelectric Projects

Abstract
The purpose of this report is to inform the General Assembly of progress to date in carrying out Act 165, “An act relating to expediting development of small and micro hydroelectric projects.” Enacted in 2012, Act 165 directs the Commissioner of the Public Service Department (PSD), in consultation with the Secretary of the Agency of Natural Resources (ANR), to “seek to enter into a memorandum of understanding with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for a program to expedite the procedures for FERC’s granting approval for projects in Vermont that constitute small conduit hydroelectric facilities and small hydroelectric power projects.” Act 165 instructs the Commissioner to, no later than January 15, 2014 and annually by each second January 15 thereafter, submit a written report to the General Assembly “detailing the process of the MOU program, including an identification of each hydroelectric project participating in the program.”
