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 Description FPA 30(a)(3)(A) ........... 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 40 megawatts .............................................. On or before August 9, 2013, the facility is not licensed, or exempted from the licensing requirements of Part I of the FPA. FPA 30(a)(3)(C)(i) ....... FPA 30(a)(3)(C)(ii) ......
