Revolve Renewable Power Corp. was notified by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) that its right of ways/variance land applications for the 250 MW Parker Solar and Storage Project located in La Paz County (Ariz.) has been approved for further processing.
The Parker Project will be situated on 1,530 acres of land that is entirely managed by the BLM, nine miles southeast from Parker, Ariz. The entire project site is located in a solar variance area as identified in BLM’s Solar PEIS and Record of Decision. It can provide electricity to approximately 300,000.
The company will now proceed with the BLM approval process. This will include completing an environmental review of project in accordance to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 as well as all applicable laws, regulations, and policies.
The company confirms that it has appointed Wood Group Inc. as a global engineering consulting firm to conduct the field studies necessary for the NEPA process. The biological field studies are already underway and will be completed in the next months. The assessments of cultural and aquatic resources will be completed in Q1 2023.
“Completion of the variance approval process is a major milestone for the development of the Parker Project and is the result of some excellent work by the Revolve development team working closely with the BLM over the last 10 months,” says Steve Dalton, CEO of Revolve. “We now look forward to continuing this work with the BLM and our external consultants as the project moves into the NEPA process.”
