Solar - Primergy Solar Project

Solar electric energy is permittable in La Plata County. The type of permit is dependent on either the power generation or the acreage of the facility. Small and large-scale solar projects are subject to Sec. 73-19 in the Land Use Code (LUC).

Solar energy facilities that do not meet the criteria for a small or large-scale solar project must apply for a 1041 permit, which is subject to the standards and requirements of Chapter 69. Due to the larger generation capacity of a solar energy facility, it becomes designated as a major facility of a public utility.
