Yeamans; Notice of Preliminary Determination of a Qualifying Conduit Hydropower Facility and Soliciting Comments and Motions To Intervene On September 23, 2016, Joseph W. Yeamans filed a notice of intent to construct a qualifying conduit hydropower facility, pursuant to section 30 of the Federal Power Act (FPA), as 70415 amended by section 4 of the Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act of 2013 (HREA). The proposed FMC 33B Micro-hydro Project would have an installed capacity of 5 kilowatts (kW), and would be located along an existing irrigation pipeline on the applicant’s land. The project would be located near the Town of Paonia in Delta County, Colorado. Applicant Contact: Joseph W. Yeamans, 15445 Amsbury Rd., Paonia, CO 81428 Phone No. (970) 527–4323. FERC Contact: Christopher Chaney, Phone No. (202) 502–6778, email: Christopher.Chaney@ferc.gov. Qualifying Conduit Hydropower Facility Description: The proposed project would consist of: (1) An approximately 17-foot by 9-foot underground concrete vault containing one 4-jet Turgo turbine/generating unit with an installed capacity of 5 kW; (2) a 387-foot-long, 12-inch-diameter penstock, which further reduces to a short, 8-inch-diameter penstock with an 8-inch-diameter bypass; (3) four short, 4-inch-diameter pipes supplying the turbine/generating unit’s four jets; (4) a 75-foot-long, 15-inch-diameter tailrace pipe discharging water to an existing irrigation conduit; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would have an estimated annual generating capacity of 12,000 kilowatt-hours. A qualifying conduit hydropower facility is one that is determined or deemed to meet all of the criteria shown in the table below. TABLE 1—CRITERIA FOR QUALIFYING CONDUIT HYDROPOWER FACILITY Statutory provision Description Satisfies (Y/N) FPA 30(a)(3)(A), as amended by HREA .. The conduit the facility uses is a tunnel, canal, pipeline, aqueduct, flume, ditch, or similar manmade water conveyance that is operated for the distribution of water for agricultural, municipal, or industrial consumption and not primarily for the generation of electricity. The facility is constructed, operated, or maintained for the generation of electric power and uses for such generation only the hydroelectric potential of a non-federally owned conduit. The facility has an installed capacity that does not exceed 5 megawatts .................. Y FPA 30(a)(3)(C)(i), as amended by HREA mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES FPA 30(a)(3)(C)(ii), as amended HREA. FPA 30(a)(3)(C)(iii), as amended HREA. by by On or before August 9, 2013, the facility is not licensed, or exempted from the licensing requirements of Part I of the FPA. Preliminary Determination: The proposed addition of the hydroelectric project along the existing irrigation pipeline will not alter its primary purpose. Therefore, based upon the above criteria, Commission staff preliminarily determines that the proposal satisfies the requirements for a qualifying conduit hydropower facility, which is not required to be licensed or exempted from licensing. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:13 Oct 11, 2016 Jkt 241001 Comments and Motions To Intervene: Deadline for filing comments contesting whether the facility meets the qualifying criteria is 45 days from the issuance date of this notice. Deadline for filing motions to intervene is 30 days from the issuance date of this notice. Anyone may submit comments or a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of Rules of Practice PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Y Y Y and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.210 and 385.214.
