BluEarth submitted the Loyalist Solar Project into the Large Renewable Procurement 1 Request for Proposals (LRP 1 RFP) on September 1, 2015. It is anticipated that the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) will identify the successful projects in late 2015.
If the Project is awarded a contract, BluEarth will be required to obtain various approvals under the Renewable Energy Approval (REA) process. This will include additional field and engineering studies including:
- Vegetation assessments
- Wildlife and habitat surveys, including surveys for endangered and threatened species
- Bird point counts
- Hydrogeological studies and stormwater/grading design works
- Visual screening design
