The Land Use Planning Commission adopted amendments to Ch. 10, Land Use Districts and Standards, to allow development of grid-scale solar energy generation facilities with a permit in the Commercial Industrial Development Subdistrict (D-CI). The revisions include a set of criteria that help identify eligible locations for redistricting to D-CI for the purpose of developing a grid-scale solar energy generation facility. A D-CI subdistrict designated for the purpose of developing a grid-scale solar energy generation facility will automatically revert to the prior subdistrict designation if the facility is not developed within a reasonable period of time, or if built, upon decommissioning of the facility. See http://www.maine.gov/sos/cec/rules/notices/2018/022818.html.
