Section 242 Hydroelectric Incentive Payments

The hydroelectric production incentive payments are a benefit available for electric energy generation and sold for a specified 10-year period as authorized under the Energy Policy Act of 2005. In the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, DOE received $125 million to support this hydroelectric production incentive. At this time, DOE is accepting applications from owners and authorized operators of qualified hydroelectric facilities for hydroelectricity generated and sold.


Any owner or authorized operator of a hydroelectric generation facility may apply for incentive payments for net electric energy generated by and sold from its operation during the eligibility window.
