23 CHAPTER 68
24 ENERGY FACILITY SITING
25 39-6801. SHORT TITLE. This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the
26 "State Energy Facility Siting Act."
27 39-6802. LEGISLATIVE INTENT. (1) The legislature of the state of Idaho
28 recognizes that the selection of sites for the construction and operation of
29 energy facilities will have a significant impact upon the health and welfare
30 of the population, the location and growth of industry and the use of the nat-
31 ural resources of the state. Site selection is a matter of statewide concern,
32 and the provisions of this chapter are therefor enacted to provide an effec-
33 tive method of establishing such sites.
34 (2) It is the policy of the state of Idaho to recognize the significant
35 impact of energy facilities, and to ensure through available and reasonable
36 methods, that the location and operation of such facilities will produce mini-
37 mal adverse effects on Idaho's citizens and the environment. It is the intent
38 to seek courses of action that will balance the demands for energy facility
39 location and operation in conjunction with the broad interests of the public.
40 (3) It is the intent of the legislature that the site license process not
41 duplicate or replace the existing local, state, and federal permitting proc-
1 esses. The site license is a preliminary, general review and prerequisite for
2 the permitting processes to proceed.

52 safety, cost and consistency with local planning and existing development
53 or can be mitigated with appropriate license conditions; and
54 (e) No other major concerns have been raised by the panel regarding pub-
55 lic health or the environment which cannot be mitigated by special license
2 (11) An applicant denied a siting license pursuant to this chapter or any

8 subsection (2) of this section, information obtained by the department under
9 the provisions of this chapter shall be deemed to be a public record.
10 (2) A person regulated under the provisions of this chapter may designate
11 a record, site license application, other information, or a portion of a
12 record, site license application, or other information furnished to or
13 obtained by the department or its agents, as being only for the use of the
14 department and the panel. The material shall then be subject to disclosure
15 according to chapter 3, title 9, Idaho Code.
16 39-6815. REMEDY FOR DEVALUATION OF PROPERTY CAUSED BY APPROVED FACILITY.
17 (1) Before construction of an energy facility, but in no case later than nine
18 (9) months after approval of a site license for an energy facility, any owner
19 or user of real property adversely affected by approval may bring an action in
20 a district court of competent jurisdiction against the owner of the proposed
21 facility. If the court determines that the planned construction and operation
22 of the energy facility will result in the devaluation of the plaintiff's prop-
23 erty or will otherwise interfere with the plaintiff's rights in the property,
24 it shall order the owner to compensate the plaintiff in an amount equal to the
25 value of the plaintiff's loss.
26 (2) The remedy provided in subsection (1) of this section shall be in
27 addition to other remedies provided by law for owners or users aggrieved by
28 the proposed construction and operation of an energy facility.
29 (3) Nothing in this chapter shall prevent an owner or user of property
30 aggrieved by the construction and operation of a facility from seeking damages
31 that result from a subsequent modification of the design or operation of a
32 facility but such damages are limited to the incremental damage that results
33 from the modification. Any action for such damages under this section shall be
34 brought within nine (9) months after the siting license for modification of
35 the design or operation of the facility is approved.
36 (4) For the purpose of assessing damages, the value of the rights
37 affected is fixed at the date the siting license is approved and the actual
38 value of the right at that date is the basis for the determination of the
39 amount of damage suffered, and no improvements to the property subsequent to
40 the date of approval of the plans shall be included in the assessment of dam-
41 ages. Similarly, for any subsequent modification of a facility, value is
42 fixed at the date of approval of the siting license.
43 (5) The owner or operator of a proposed facility may, at any time before
44 an award of damages, abandon the construction or operation of the facility or
45 any modification and cause the action to be dismissed. As a condition of dis-
46 missal, however, the owner or operator shall compensate the plaintiff for any
47 actual damage sustained as a result of construction or operation of the facil-
48 ity before abandonment together with court costs and a reasonable attorney's
50 (6) Nothing in this chapter shall prevent a court from enjoining any
51 activity at an energy facility that is outside of, or not in compliance with,
52 the terms and conditions of an approved permit issued pursuant to local, state
53 or federal law.
1 SECTION 2. An emergency existing therefor, which emergency is hereby
2 declared to exist, this act shall be in full force and effect on and after its
3 passage and approval, and retroactively to January 1, 2006.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to codify a statewide process
for the selection of sites for the construction and operation of
None. Costs of the implementation of the statutory provisions
will be covered by a fee from facility operators.
