Two HUGE solar projects (~2,500 acres – Grant County; ~3,500 acres – Badger Hollow) that I’ve worked on are delayed, first force majeure right after COVID began and imports ended:

Solar Force Majeure in WI – Coronavirus – February 26th, 2020

Then Force Majeure notice cancelled:

Cancellation of Force Majeure – March 11th, 2020

Then again, more delays announced by developer:Grant County solar – 9804-CE-100:

Second Extension of Time to Begin Construction

And Badger Hollow solar, also delayed:

Badger Hollow II O.P. 6 Q1 2022 Construction Report

A few days ago, there was this in the Federal Register:

Declaration of Emergency and Authorization for Temporary Extensions of Time and Duty-Free Importation of Solar Cells and Modules From Southeast Asia

What is the impact of this on these stalled out solar projects? Inquiring minds want to know!

Do the repeated delays, repeated extensions, alter the financial picture for these two projects, and others as well? Inquiring minds want to know!

Does this Presidential Proclamation alter odds of delivery, speed of delivery, of solar panels that they’re waiting for? Inquiring minds want to know!
