ADDRESSES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 22:37 Dec 27, 2010 Jkt 223001 Mr. The Administration is committed to increasing the generation of environmentally sustainable, affordable hydropower for our national electricity supplies. Reclamation has 476 dams and 8,116 miles of canals, and owns and operates 58 hydropower plants. On an annual basis, these plants produce an average of 40 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, enough to meet the entire electricity needs of over 9 million people on average, and provide the energy equivalent of more than 80 million barrels of crude oil or about 48.4 billion pounds of coal. Reclamation is the second largest producer of hydroelectric power in the United States, and is actively engaged in looking for opportunities to encourage development of additional hydropower capacity. In March 2010 Reclamation signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Department of Energy and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The MOU focuses on ways to increase renewable energy generation by focusing on development of sustainable, low impact, and small hydropower projects. The MOU committed Reclamation to produce an updated list of facilities and sites best suited for projects to increase sustainable hydropower generation by October 2010. The HRA provides information on potential hydropower development at existing Reclamation facilities that may warrant further study. The Draft Report does not make any recommendations for development of the sites included in the report. Instead, it provides an inventory of hydropower potential at existing Reclamation sites using broad energy and economic criteria. Reclamation is not undertaking a new dam construction initiative with this study, and is focused on identifying the hydropower potential of Reclamation’s existing structures. This resource assessment level study does not take the place of a site by site feasibility study.
