The Power Plant Siting Act (PPSA) is the state’s centralized process for licensing large power plants. One license—a certification— replaces local and state permits. Local governments and state agencies within whose jurisdiction the power plant is to be built participate in the process. For the purpose of the Act, an electrical power plant is defined as any steam or solar electrical generating facility using any process or fuel, including nuclear materials, with a generating capacity of 75 MW or greater.
