Abstract: 

This paper takes a look at the FERC's "first-in-time" policy for granting preliminary permits to new hydropower projects concluding that FERC's policy contradicts Federal Power Act's directive to the Commission. The paper also argues that this policy also does not allow for competition for licensing.
