The Bureau of Land Management has approved the right of way and variance land application for the 250-MW Parker Solar and Storage Project located in La Paz County, Arizona.
The Parker Project, developed by Revolve Renewable Power, is a solar + storage project located on approximately 1,530 acres of land wholly managed by the BLM in La Paz County, 9 miles southeast of Parker. The entire project site is located in a solar variance area that has the capacity to provide electricity to an equivalent of approximately 300,000 homes.
Revolve will continue through the BLM approval process, requiring an environmental review of the Parker Project in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and all other applicable laws, regulations and policies.
The company selected Wood to lead the field studies required as part of the NEPA process. The field studies have commenced and will be completed in the coming months. The aquatic and cultural resource assessments will be completed during 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,” said 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.”
