Clean Energy Coordinated Permit Process

In Washington state, there are three different pathways clean energy developers can choose when applying for permits for their proposed project. A project proponent will decide which pathway to use based on their needs and their project. The described pathways are for private projects proposed by a private developer for a specific site.

Ecology has established a new coordinated permit process for eligible clean energy projects as directed by the state Legislature. This includes assisting with pre-application discussions, environmental review, and permit processes with state and local agencies. Tribes and federal agencies may also be involved.
