Reclamation announces finalized LOPP requirements

The Bureau of Reclamation has finalized its Lease of Power Privilege (LOPP) Processes, Responsibilities, Timelines and Charges Directive and Standard.

These standards define the LOPP process and how the agency works with non-federal entities and are a follow-up to a temporary directive and standard issued by Reclamation in April.

"Through these leases, Reclamation is able to work with non-federal entities and project beneficiaries to increase the amount of renewable hydropower produced in meeting the growing energy needs of the nation," says Reclamation Commissioner Michael L. Connor.

Connor says the directive and standard provides a "clear and understanding process" to develop hydropower on Reclamation dams and canals.

The directive and standard provides timelines on LOPP requirements, assigns roles and responsibilities within the organization for LOPP development, sets a standard methodology across Reclamation for LOPP charges and identifies all potential charges for developers.

More details about the directives and standards can be found on Reclamation's website here under Series FAC 04-08.
