Rockford Solar Energy Project, Chicago-Rockford Airport, Winnebago County, Illinois
This EA evaluates the environmental impacts of a proposal to provide Federal funding to the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) under the State Energy Program (SEP). DCEO is seeking to provide $4 million of its SEP funds to Rockford Solar Partners LLC (RSP), who would use these funds for the design, permitting, and construction of a solar photovoltaic facility with a generating capacity of up to 20 megawatts (MW). DOE’s Proposed Action would authorize $4,025,000 million in grant expenditures. The total cost of Rockford Solar Partner’s proposed project would be approximately $127 million.
