While FERC has jurisdiction over hydropower projects, FERC has no authority over the construction or maintenance of power generating plants and has significant limited jurisdiction over transmission line siting.

The responsibility over the construction and maintenance of power generating plants and transmission lines primarily resides with the state Public Utility Commissions. You can link to all the Public Utility Commissions on the National Associations of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) External Link website.
