What is the process for obtaining a license to build Susitna-Watana Hydro?

The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) is seeking a license to build Susitna-Watana Hydro under the Federal Regulatory Agency Commission’s (FERC) Integrated Licensing Process (ILP). It will take approximately six years to complete the pre-licensing applications, studies, environmental impact statement and application processes before a license can be issued.

Throughout the ILP, other federal, state and local agencies, as well as other interested stakeholders and the public at large have the opportunity to weigh in on the proposed project.
