Maine Land Use Planning Commission's Proposed Regulatory Revisions for Grid-scale Solar Energy Systems

The Maine Land Use Planning Commission proposes to amend Chapter 10 Land Use Districts and Standards, to allow development of grid-scale solar energy generation facilities with a permit in the Commercial Industrial Development Subdistrict (D-CI). The proposal includes a set of criteria that help identify eligible locations for redistricting to D-CI for the purpose of developing a grid-scale solar energy generation facility. A D-CI subdistrict designated for the purpose of developing a grid-scale solar energy generation facility would automatically revert to the prior subdistrict designation if the facility is not developed within a reasonable period of time, or if built, upon decommissioning of the facility.
