HYPE Act HYdropower Permit Extension Act This bill amends the Federal Power Act to authorize the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to issue a preliminary permit to a hydropower construction license applicant for up to four years, instead of three. FERC may extend a preliminary permit once for no more than four years and may issue an additional four-year extension if it determines there are extraordinary circumstances that warrant the issuance of an additional extension. Additionally, FERC may extend the time a licensee has to commence construction on a project for up to eight years. Under current law, FERC may extend the license for no more than two years.
