|RAPID/Hydropower/California/Power Plant +||"California defines renewable resources to include ""small hydroelectric generation of 30 megawatts or less, ...ocean wave,... or tidal current, and any additions or enhancements to the facility using that technology."" ""A small hydroelectric generation facility is not an eligible renewable electrical generation facility if it will cause an adverse impact on instream beneficial uses or cause a change in the volume or timing of streamflow."[[California Energy Commission, Renewables Portfolio Standard Eligibility Guidebook|Renewables Portfolio Standard Eligibility Guidebook, at p.14]]. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/Colorado/Power Plant +||New hydroelectricity with a nameplate capacity of 10 MW or less and hydroelectricity in existing on January 1, 2005 with a nameplate rating of 30 MW or less. Note: Pumped storage hydro is excluded. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/Indiana/Power Plant +||Hydropower is a clean energy technology under Indiana's Clean Energy Portfolio Standard (CPS). [[Indiana – Ind. Code. §§ 8-1-27 et seq., Voluntary Clean Energy Portfolio Standard|Ind. Code. §8-1-27]]. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/New York/Power Plant +||Hydroelectric upgrades with no new storage impoundments, with eligibility limited to the incremental production associated with the upgrade; new low-impact run-of-river hydroelectric facilities limited to 30 MW or less, with no new storage impoundment; and existing very small hydroelectric facilities within certain conditions (10MWs or less, in-state facilities, with expiring above-market energy contracts). In-State run-of-river hydroelectric facilities of 5MWs or less in commercial operation at any time prior to January 1, 2003 that demonstrate need to receive RPS financial support to operate. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/Ohio/Power Plant +||"Hydroelectric facilities that are in compliance with state environmental laws and standards are eligible renewable resources under Ohio's RPS program. [[Ohio – Ohio Rev. Code Ann. §§ 4928.64 et seq., Electric distribution utility to provide electricity from alternative energy resources|Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 4928.64]]. Hydroelectric facilities are those ""hydroelectric generating facilities located at a dam on a river, or any water discharged to a river, that is within or bordering the state of Ohio or bordering an adjoining state. [[Ohio – Ohio Rev. Code Ann. §§ 4928.01 et seq., Competitive retail electric service definitions|Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 4928.01(A)(37)(b)]]. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/Pennsylvania/Power Plant +||Low-impact hydropower and large-scale hydropower qualify as alternative energy sources under Pennsylvania's Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards. [[Pennsylvania – 73 Pa. Stat. §§ 1648.1 et seq., Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards|73 Pa. Stat. § 1648.7]]. Large-scale hydropower is the "production of electric power by harnessing the hydroelectric potential of moving water impoundments," including pumped storage. Low-impact hydropower does not include pumped storage and must have a FERC licensed capacity of 21 MW or less, or be an "incremental hydroelectric development" meeting various certification and state environmental standards. [[Pennsylvania – 73 Pa. Stat. §§ 1648.1 et seq., Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards|73 Pa. Stat. § 1648.7]]. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/Vermont/Power Plant +||Hydroelectric facilities with a generating capacity of 200 MW or less. +|
|RAPID/Hydropower/Washington/Power Plant +||Hydroelectric generation projects are eligible for compliance under RPS if incremental electricity produced as a result of efficiency improvements completed after March 31, 1999, are made to: i) Hydroelectric projects owned by a utility subject to this standard and located in the Pacific Northwest; or to ii) Hydroelectric generation in irrigation pipes and canals located in the Pacific Northwest, where the additional generation in either case does not result in new water diversions or impoundments. +|
