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.
