Also under Section V., the Guidance now provides three hypothetical examples to explain when hydroelectric generation facility production would be eligible for incentive payments based on statutory date requirements. Section VI. includes a clarification that applications for each incentive period must be properly completed and submitted to DOE each year and cannot simply refer to an application from a previous year. Section VI. removes the application requirement that applicants notify DOE at least six months before a facility is expected to be first used. In Section VII., the Guidance states that an appeal may be dismissed for any reason that an appeal would be subject to dismissal under Office of Hearings and Appeals procedural regulations at 10 CFR part 1003. Finally, in Section VII. OHA grants DOE an opportunity to submit a written response to an appeal and allows the appellant the opportunity to reply to DOE’s response. DOE notes that applicants that received incentive payments for prior calendar years must submit a full application addressing all eligibility requirements for hydroelectricity generated and sold in calendar year 2018. DOE will not consider previously submitted application materials. Applications that refer to previous application materials or statements in lieu of submitting current information will not be considered. As authorized under Section 242 of EPAct 2005, and as explained in the Guidance, DOE also notes that it will only accept applications from qualified hydroelectric facilities that began operations at an existing dam or conduit during the inclusive period beginning October 1, 2005, and ending on September 30, 2015. Therefore, although DOE is accepting applications for full calendar year 2018 production, the qualified hydroelectric facility must have begun operations starting October 1, 2005, through September 30, 2015, for DOE to consider the application. When submitting information to DOE for Section 242 program, it is recommended that applicants carefully read and review the completed content of the Guidance for this process. When reviewing applications, DOE may corroborate the information provided with information that DOE finds through FERC e-filings, contact with power off-taker, and other due diligence measure carried out by reviewing officials. DOE may require the applicant to conduct and submit an independent audit at its own expense, or DOE may conduct an audit to verify the number of kilowatt-hours claimed to have been VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:50 May 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 generated and sold by the qualified hydroelectric facility and for which an incentive payment has been requested or made.
