The solar electric generation facility is a
Type III action under
Wis. Admin. Code § PSC 4.10(3).Type III actions normally do not require preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under Wis. Admin. Code § PSC 4.10(3). However, an evaluation of a specific Type III proposal may indicate that the preparation of an EA is warranted for that proposal. In addition, Koshkonong is seeking approval to construct a battery energy storage system (BESS) which is a
Type II action under
Wis. Admin. Code § PSC 4.10(2). The Commission will prepare an EA for this project that will evaluate the location of the project and its potential environmental, community, and private property impacts. There will be a preliminary determination when the EA is complete that will determine whether the preparation of an EIS is necessary.
