Bill Subjects
  • Energy
House Sponsors R. Pelton (R)

House Committee Energy and Environment
Senate Committee State, Veterans and Military Affairs
Date Introduced 02/01/2022

The bill requires that, on or before September 1, 2024, an owner
or operator of a wind-powered energy generation facility (facility) that is
required to obtain a land-use permit from a local government equip the
facility with an aircraft detection lighting system (system). The bill
defines a system as a sensor-based system that is designed to detect

approaching aircraft and that meets federal aviation administration
requirements. An owner or operator of a facility is solely responsible for
the costs of installing, operating, or maintaining a system and may request
from the governing body of the local government an extension of time up
to one year to equip a facility with a system. A local government may
revoke an existing land-use permit or, if an application for permit renewal
is pending, refuse to renew a land-use permit if a facility owner or
operator fails to comply with the bill. The board of county commissioners
in the county in which a facility is located may adopt and enforce an
ordinance or resolution to authorize the board to impose civil penalties
against a facility owner or operator if the board determines that the owner
or operator has failed to comply with the bill.
