This is the Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on July 16, 2019. From the Document: "S. 859 would amend existing law regarding incentive payments made by the Department of Energy (DOE) to nonfederal owners or operators of certain hydroelectric facilities. DOE currently is authorized to provide two types of incentives to eligible projects: payments based on the amount of hydroelectricity generated by the facility and payments that defray some of the cost of measures that improve the efficiency of existing facilities. For 2019, the Congress has provided nearly $7 million for generation-based payments; no funding was provided for hydroelectricity efficiency payments."
