Review starts on Teanaway solar project in Wash. August 22, 2009

With the submission to Kittitas County on Tuesday of the permit application for the $300 million Teanaway Solar Reserve project begins a public review and permitting process that tentatively may end in December.

If there are no appeals or other actions that delay the orderly scrutiny of the proposed solar power plant, it’s possible a final decision by the county Board of Adjustment may come in November or December, according to county Community Development Services officials.

County Planner Dan Valoff said the tentative December review completion date is just that, tentative, and could change due to a number of factors.

Valoff shared a general outline of the process to be used to publicly review the project that proponents say will be the world’s largest solar power plant, with 400,000 photovoltaic panels, when completed on a 145-acre site four miles northeast of Cle Elum.
