DEQ's authority over renewable energy projects is set forth in the 2009 Small Renewable Energy Projects statute, which directed DEQ to develop permit by rule (PBR) regulations for wind, solar, combustion based and water related resources if the Department determined that one or more such permits by rule would be necessary for the construction and operation of small renewable energy projects.
