No comment forum defined for this notice.

On October 14, 2014, Eastern Shore Solar LLC (Eastern Shore Solar) submitted a notice of intent (NOI) to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) for a small solar energy project.  In accordance with 9VAC15-60-30 A 1 of the Small Renewable Energy Projects (Solar) Permit by Rule Regulation, a NOI is to be submitted to DEQ and is to be published in the Virginia Register as notification that Eastern Shore Solar intends to submit the necessary documentation for a permit by rule for a small renewable solar energy project pursuant to 9VAC15-60.

Proposed Project:  Eastern Shore Solar is proposing a small solar energy project consisting of four sub-projects.  Each sub-project will have a maximum capacity of 20 Megawatts Alternating Current (AC), for a total combined maximum capacity of 80 Megawatts AC.  The combined 80 MW of sub-projects will be sited across roughly 1,000 acres, and across multiple parcels.

The four sub-projects will utilize traditional photovoltaic solar modules, and rotate throughout the day to track the sun.  The four sub-projects may ultimately be broken out, such that separate permits may be requested from DEQ pursuant to this notice.

Proposed Site Location:  Northern Accomack County, west of Route 13 around the Oak Hall Electrical Substation in the general vicinity of Withams and Miona, VA.
