Summary

This chapter aims to ensure that the location, construction, and operation of energy conversion facilities and transmission facilities will produce minimal adverse effects on the environment and the welfare of the citizens of the state. A certification of site compatibility or a route permit is required for the location, construction, and operation of such a facility. These regulations apply to: (1) wind energy conversion facilities with a capacity of at least 0.5 MW, (2) all other energy generation facilities with a capacity greater than 50 MW, (3) facilities manufacturing or refining at least 100 million cubic feet of gas per day, (4) facilities manufacturing or refining at least 50 thousand barrels of liquid hydrocarbon products per day, and (5) facilities related to the enrichment of uranium materials. Additionally, transmission facilities include: (1) electric transmission lines with a design exceeding 115 kV, (2) gas or liquid transmission lines designed for or capable of transporting coal, gas, liquid hydrocarbons, liquid hydrocarbon products, or carbon dioxide, and (3) liquid transmission lines and associated facilities designed for or capable of transporting water from or to an energy conversion facility. Some exemptions apply. Additionally, the construction of transmission lines transporting hydroelectric power produced outside of the United States must be approved by the legislative assembly.
