The State of Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC or Council) provides a "one-stop" siting process for major energy facilities in the State of Washington. EFSEC coordinates all evaluation and licensing steps for siting certain energy facilities in Washington. EFSEC specifies the conditions of construction and operation. If approved, a Site Certification Agreement is issued in lieu of any other individual state or local agency permits. EFSEC also manages an environmental and safety oversight program of facility and site operations.
Local governments are required to report to the Department of Defense when an energy facility application is received - RCW 36.01.320
Energy developers and reviewers are advised to consult with the DOD early in the development stage of a project to identify and avoid risks associated with military operations and safety.
