SOO Green is committed to working in collaboration with federal, state and local agencies to meet or exceed compliance with all applicable laws and regulations throughout the permitting process. Installation of the transmission line underground along an existing railroad right-of-way has garnered support at the local, state, and federal agency levels and will undoubtedly simplify the Project’s permitting process.
SOO Green has commenced permitting efforts with a number of federal, state, and local jurisdictions including the Army Corps of Engineers and the Iowa Utilities Board. SOO Green will notify landowners adjacent to the Project’s path before crews begin surveys and other work. Indeed, SOO Green has begun hosting informational meetings in each of counties along the project’s route.
