Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
Virginia Code §§ 10.1-1197.5 through -1197.11 require DEQ to promulgate regulations governing small renewable energy projects. To date, DEQ has developed Permit by Rule Regulations for Wind (9VAC15-40), Solar (9VAC14-60) and Combustion (9VAC15-70) Projects. Va. Code § 10.1-1197.9 provides for negotiated civil charges in consent orders for violations of the small renewable energy projects law, regulations, orders or permit conditions. This guidance describes the procedures and criteria DEQ will use when calculating a civil charge in administrative enforcement actions. This guidance is an addendum to the current Chapter 4 (CEM-07). : As provided in § 2.2-4002.1 of the Administrative Process Act (APA), the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking comments on whether the subject guidance document is: (i) contrary to state law or regulation; or, (ii) should not be exempted from the provisions of the APA. DEQ is also seeking general comment on the guidelines and procedures in accordance with Virginia Code § 10.1-1197.9.
