Abstract : JB MDL proposes to establish seven solar panel systems across the McGuire and Lakehurst portions of JB MDL (Figure 1-1). There would be four roof systems and two ground-based systems on McGuire, and one ground-based system on Lakehurst. This Environmental Assessment addresses the potential environmental, socioeconomic, and cultural impacts of this proposal at JB MDL. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to document the potential for environmental impacts resulting from the installation and operation of solar systems on JB MDL. This EA has been prepared under the provisions of, and in accordance with, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 United States Code [USC] 4321 et seq.), Council of Environmental Quality [CEQ] Regulations Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500-1508), and 32 CFR 989 (Air Force Environmental Impacts Analysis Process). The Proposed Action is needed to reduce the energy costs at JB MDL and to comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005, 42 USC 13201 et seq., that requires the Federal Government to meet renewable energy goals and promotes a photovoltaic energy commercialization program for Federal buildings.
