Southern Utah Solar Project Granted County Permit

Press Release

February 26, 2014

Fillmore —Energy Capital Group, LLC (ECG) has had a conditional use permit for its 300 megawatt solar project ECG Utah Solar 1 approved by Millard County. 

The project is located on 1,754 acres leased from the Utah School and Institutional Trust Land Administration (SITLA) with a transmission easement to the Intermountain Power Project (IPP) about one mile from the project site. Lease payments support Utah public schools.

The project will interconnect at the IPP switch yard where a high voltage transmission line originates called the Southern Transmission System (STS) which goes directly to Adelanto, Calif. 

"Energy Capital Group is very pleased to have another project milestone achieved, with the finalizing of the conditional use permit for ECG Utah Solar 1 by Millard County today,” said Josh Case, CEO of ECG.

The project’s developers signed the SITLA lease in May 2013 and have secured an interconnection queue position with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), the California Balancing Authority and operating agent at IPP. Biological and cultural studies have also been completed.
