Interlocal Agreement Announced for the Graphite Solar Community Reinvestment Project


Recently, a notice of an interlocal agreement between the Carbon County Redevelopment Agency and Carbon County, the Carbon Water Conservancy District, Carbon School District (CSD) and the Price River Water Improvement District (PRWID) was announced.

In this notice, it stated that pursuant to Utah Code Sections 11-13-219 and 17C-5-205, the Carbon County Redevelopment Agency and the aforementioned organizations and agencies are jointly providing this notice with respect to interlocal agreements entered into by and between the agency and these taxing entities. The entities will consent to the agency receiving a portion of the incremental property tax revenues generated in the Graphite Solar Community Reinvestment Project Area.

This agreement spans over a period of no more than 15 years for the purpose of facilitating development of a utility-scale solar project within the project area. During a Carbon County Commission meeting in January, it was explained that the project is a 40-year power plant that will operate at the site. During the construction, Graphite Solar aims to use as many local resources as possible. The business has built similar projects in Iron County and over 90 percent of the workers were local.

Copies of the interlocal agreement are available for public inspection and copying at the Carbon County Redevelopment Agency, as well as county offices, located at 751 East 100 North in Price. Copies may be obtained during regular office hours, which are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

These copies will be available for a period of at least 30 days following the publication of the notice on April 29. For a period of 30 days after the publication, any individual interested may contest to the agreement or procedures used to adopt them if there is a failure to comply with any applicable statutory requirement. Following the 30 days, no individual may contest the agreement for any cause.
