DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
Rural Development
Bar D Solar, LLC: Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact
AGENCY: Rural Development, USDA
ACTION: Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact.
SUMMARY: The USDA-Rural Development (USDA-RD) has made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) with respect to a request for possible financing assistance to Bar D Solar, LLC for the construction of the 5.394KW solar farm in Rio Blanco County, Colorado.
FURTHER INFORMATION: To obtain copies of the EA and FONSI, or for further information, contact: Jaki Polich, B&CP Loan Specialist, 628 West 5th Street, Cortez, CO 81321, (970)529-8369, jaki.polich@usda.gov. The EA and FONSI are also available for public review at USDA-RD 628 West 5th Street, Cortez, CO 81321.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed project consists of a 5.394 megawatt (MW) direct current solar farm in Meeker, Colorado. The project will use ground-mounted, fixed tilt solar arrays, consisting of 16,472, 340-watt (W) solar modules, 2, 2500 kilowatt (kW) inverters, and associated racking and electrical equipment. The Facility would have a generating capacity of 10,296 megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy per year and would sell this energy to White River Electric Association (WREA) under a long term fixed power purchase agreement. Alternatives considered by USDA-RD and Bar D Solar, LLC include: No action. The alternatives are discussed in the Bar D Solar, LLC EA. The USDA-RD has reviewed and approved the EA for the proposed project.
The availability of the EA for public review was announced via notice in the following newspaper(s): The Herald Times, Meeker, CO on September 6, 2018 and September 13, 2018. A 14-day comment period was announced in the newspaper notice(s). The EA was also available for public review at the USDA Rural Development office and website as well as Bar D Solar, LLC offices. No comments were received.
Based on its EA, commitments made by Bar D Solar, LLC and public comments received, USDA-RD has concluded that the project would have no significant impact to water quality, wetlands, floodplains, land use, aesthetics, transportation, or human health and safety.
The proposed project will have no adverse effect on resources listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Agency has also concluded that the proposed project is not likely to affect federally listed threatened and endangered species or designated critical habitat thereof. The proposed project would not disproportionately affect minority and/or low-income populations.
No other potential significant impacts resulting from the proposed project have been identified. Therefore, USDA-RD has determined that this FONSI fulfills its obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR §§ 1500-1508), and USDA Rural Development’s Environmental Policies and Procedures (7 CFR Part 1970) for its action related to the project.
USDA-RD is satisfied that the environmental impacts of the proposed project have been adequately addressed. USDA-RD’s federal action would not result in significant impacts to the quality of the human environment, and as such it will not prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for its action related to the proposed project.
