Background:

The Subcommittee will hear testimony from some of the electricity ratepayers that receive and pay for hydropower generated at federal dams and transmitted by the four federal Power Marketing Administrations (PMAs). For generations, millions of electricity consumers have received low-cost hydropower generated at federal dams and reservoirs. The core mission of the four PMAs is to transmit this emissions-free resource to their customers. Through their rates, these customers pay for the electricity supply, the transmission needed to deliver this power, and the capital components of both generation and transmission infrastructure plus interest to the federal government.
