Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Counties Code. Provides that, beginning June 1, 2025 and subject to Federal Aviation Administration approval to equip and operate light mitigating technology for at least 30% of the proposed wind towers included within a commercial wind energy facility, a county shall require the facility owner of a commercial wind energy facility constructed beginning in 2019 or later to install light mitigating technology at the commercial wind energy facility. Includes requirements when the light mitigating technology must be installed, and allows a facility owner to seek an extension from these requirements from the county board. Provides that a county board may impose civil penalties on the facility owner of a commercial wind energy facility that failed to comply with the requirements in the amount of $1,000 per day.
