Supports the expansion of hydropower energy development at existing dams through an incentive payment procedure. Qualified hydroelectric facilities–existing powered or non-powered dams and conduits that added a new turbine or other hydroelectric generating device–may receive up to 1.8 cents per kilowatt hour, indexed for inflation (approximately 2.3 cents per kilowatt hour today) with maximum payments of $750,000 per year for hydroelectric energy generated by the facility during the incentive period.
