Licensing and Regulatory Compliance

Licensing and operating a non-federally owned hydroelectric facility involves engagement with multiple federal and state agencies. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has primary jurisdiction to issue a non-federal license, while other federal and state agencies (and other stakeholders) play various key roles in the process.

At Washington Energy Law LLP, we are well-versed in the legal and regulatory challenges involved in licensing and demonstrating compliance with the conditions imposed on these projects. We have helped our clients successfully pursue hydroelectric power projects through a diligent and detail-oriented approach to licensing, agency consultations, and compliance.
