The 1979 Biennial Report of the California Energy Commission states that the development of preferred energy alternatives, including small hydroelectric, is a Commission priority. That report also states, "The Commission will continue to provide technical assistance for cogeneration and development of small hydroelectric energy." This manual was prepared by the staff of the Commission as part of the Development Division's program to provide this assistance.
