Cenergy must apply for approval of the project through the Illinois Power Agency Procurement Program, an incentive program that has a cap on the number of megawatts that can be produced under the incentive.
Then, Cenergy will have to apply for electric interconnection permission with ComEd to its existing electric grid. Other permissions are needed from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Illinois Department of Transportation Division of Aeronautics.
A glare study to ensure the panels do not interfere with the pilots' safety, an environmental impact study and a concurrent land use approval from the FAA must be completed.
The FAA could require the village to update its Airport Layout Plan, originally made in 2003. It would cost the village about $200,000 to create a new layout plan, village documents say.
