CLEAN ENERGY & TRANSPARENCY
In November 2020, Wild Hill Solar, LLC applied for a solar siting certificate with the Public Service Commission (PSC). The proposal was for a Solar Exempt Wholesale Generator (EWG) facility.
A Solar EWG facility generates electricity solely through solar photovoltaic or other solar methods. It includes only interconnecting transmission lines and is not owned by a utility.
Wild Hill Solar, LLC, a Delaware Corporation based in San Diego, CA, has been awarded a site certificate from the PSC for a 92.5 MWac solar project. On March 9, 2021, the Planning Commission voted to approve the solar zoning amendment.
This amendment will allow up to 80% of Jefferson County’s land to be available for development by solar facilities by right. This means that additional solar facilities could be built without prior public notification.
