Renewable Energy Facility Decommissioning: Industry Management Practices

Fact sheets

Before a project is built, developers create a plan for removing
equipment and restoring landowners’ property to a useful condition
similar to preconstruction conditions when the project is no longer
operational. This process is called decommissioning. Many local
municipalities and state governments require decommissioning plans
as a permitting condition.

The following are industry recommendations for key provisions of
decommissioning plans or rules and specific measures that reasonably
balance community and industry interests.
