The Integrated Licensing Process (ILP) - Tutorial

An applicant for a hydroelectric license must use the Integrated Licensing Process (ILP) to prepare a license application unless the Commission approves the applicant’s request to use the Traditional or Alternative Licensing Process.

This webpage is intended to guide participants through the ILP. It is not a substitute for understanding and following the regulations (Part 5 External Link). Additional suggestions about how to implement a successful ILP can be found in: Ideas for Implementing and Participating in the Integrated Licensing Process (ILP): Tools for Industry, Agencies, Tribes, Non-Governmental Organizations, Citizens, and FERC Staff PDF
