The 250MW Parker solar and storage project in Arizona, US, will now move forward with Revolve Renewable Power’s application.
The government department’s clearance was required because the project is situated in a region under the US Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) management before additional environmental reviews and regulatory procedures could start.
The 1,530-acre location is located in La Paz County, nine miles southeast of Parker, Arizona, in a “solar variance area” established by the BLM.
Revolve declared that it will now proceed with the BLM approval procedure, which will entail finishing an environmental assessment in line with the National Environmental Policy Act.
Later this year, Wood Group is scheduled to conduct additional environmental and connectivity assessments.
Steve Dalton, Revolve chief executive, said “Completion of the variance approval process is a major milestone for the development of the Parker Project and is the result of some excellent work by the Revolve development team working closely with the BLM over the last 10 months.”
“We now look forward to continuing this work with the BLM and our external consultants as the project moves into the NEPA process.”
