RAPID/Hydropower/California/Power Plant +Small hydroelectric generation of 30 megawatts or less, ...ocean wave,... or tidal current, and any additions or enhancements to the facility using that technology. A small hydroelectric generation facility is not an eligible renewable electrical generation facility if it will cause an adverse impact on instream beneficial uses or cause a change in the volume or timing of streamflow. [[California Energy Commission, Renewables Portfolio Standard Eligibility Guidebook|Renewables Portfolio Standard Eligibility Guidebook, at p.14]].  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Colorado/Power Plant +New hydropower with a nameplate capacity of 10 MW or less and hydropower in existing on January 1, 2005 with a nameplate rating of 30 MW or less. Note: Pumped storage hydropower is excluded  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Illinois/Power Plant +Hydropower that does not involve the construction of new dams or significant expansion of hydropower dams. [[Illinois – I.L.C.S. §§ 20-3855 et seq., Illinois Power Agency Act| I.L.C.S. § 20-3855]].  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Indiana/Power Plant +All hydropower is considered clean energy. [[Indiana – Ind. Code. §§ 8-1-27 et seq., Voluntary Clean Energy Portfolio Standard|Ind. Code. §8-1-27]].  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Iowa/Power Plant +Small hydropower facilities are defined as: i) A hydroelectric facility at a dam; ii) Land, systems, buildings, or improvements that are located at the project site and are necessary or convenient to the construction, completion, or operation of the facility; iii) Transmission or distribution facilities necessary to conduct the energy produced by the facility to users located at or near the project site. [[Iowa – Iowa Code §§ 476 et seq., Public Utility Regulation|Iowa Code § 476.42]].  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Minnesota/Power Plant +Hydroelectric facilities less than 100 MW.  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Missouri/Power Plant +Small hydropower 10 MW or less.  +
RAPID/Hydropower/New York/Power Plant +Hydroelectric upgrades with no new storage impoundments, with eligibility limited to the incremental production associated with the upgrade; new low-impact run-of-river hydroelectric facilities limited to 30 MW or less, with no new storage impoundment; and existing very small hydroelectric facilities within certain conditions (10MWs or less, in-state facilities, with expiring above-market energy contracts). In-State run-of-river hydroelectric facilities of 5MWs or less in commercial operation at any time prior to January 1, 2003 that demonstrate need to receive RPS financial support to operate.  +
RAPID/Hydropower/North Dakota/Power Plant +Hydroelectric facilities with a inservice date of January 1, 2007, or later, or new hydroelectric generation obtained from repowering or efficiency improvements to hydroelectric facilities existing on August 1, 2007. [[North Dakota – N.D. Century Code §§ 49-02 et seq., Powers of Commission Generally|N.D. Century Code § 49-02-26]].  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Ohio/Power Plant +Hydroelectric generating facilities located at a dam on a river, or any water discharged to a river, that is within or bordering the state of Ohio or bordering an adjoining state that are in compliance with state environmental laws and standards. [[Ohio – Ohio Rev. Code Ann. §§ 4928.01 et seq., Competitive retail electric service definitions|Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 4928.01(A)(37)(b)]]; [[Ohio – Ohio Rev. Code Ann. §§ 4928.64 et seq., Electric distribution utility to provide electricity from alternative energy resources|Ohio Rev. Code Ann. § 4928.64]].  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Pennsylvania/Power Plant +Low-impact hydropower qualifies as a Tier 1 source and does not include pumped storage and must have a FERC licensed capacity of 21 MW or less, or be an "incremental hydroelectric development" meeting various certification and state environmental standards. [[Pennsylvania – 73 Pa. Stat. § 1648.7 et seq., Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards|73 Pa. Stat. § 1648.7]]. All other hydropower, including pumped storage that does not meet the requirements of low-impact hydropower qualifies as a Tier 2 source under the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard.  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Vermont/Power Plant +Hydroelectric facilities with a generating capacity of 200 MW or less.  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Washington/Power Plant +Hydroelectric generation projects with incremental electricity produced as a result of efficiency improvements completed after March 31, 1999, that are: i) Owned by a utility and located in the Pacific Northwest; or ii) Hydroelectric generation in irrigation pipes and canals located in the Pacific Northwest, where the additional generation in either case does not result in new water diversions or impoundments.  +
RAPID/Hydropower/Wisconsin/Power Plant +Hydroelectric generation projects less than 60 MW receive credit for the sum of: *all hydropower purchased in a reporting year; *the average of the hydropower produced by the utility adjusted to reflect capacity increases from improvements or removal from service; *the amount of hydropower generated in the reporting year by facilities owned by the electric provider placed in service in 2004. Hydroelectric generation projects greater than 60 MW can be counted toward an RPS requirement if the facility was placed in service on or after December 31, 2010.  +
