On February 27, 2019, Invenergy Solar Project Development LLC submitted a revised Public Involvement Plan (“PIP”) for the proposed 3,800 acre Horseshoe Solar energy facility. Horseshoe Solar is proposed for the towns of Caledonia and Rush, primarily in Livingston County, New York. The project also includes a major electrical substation in Rush. Additional information about the project can be found on the DMM website for its associated Article 10 proceeding, available here. A map of the facility is available on the official Horseshoe Solar website here.
The filing of the revised PIP is significant because it starts a 150-day period during which the Applicant is supposed to consult with the public, host towns, and state agencies about the project and potential impacts. After the consultation period ends, the Applicant can proceed to the next stage of the Article 10 review process by filing a Preliminary Scoping Statement (“PSS”).
For inquiries about the process for siting large power plants pursuant to Article 10 of the New York State Public Service Law, please contact Benjamin E. Wisniewski.
