About the Regulatory Roadmap

The flowcharts available in this tool were developed as part of the Regulatory Roadmap project. The flowcharts cover the major requirements for developing energy projects, including, land access, siting, exploration and drilling, plant construction and operation, grid interconnection, water resource acquisition, and relevant environmental considerations. We are continuously adding flowcharts and improving this site. Check back often for new flowcharts and updates.

Reading the Roadmap

The flowcharts are divided into General, Federal, and State columns to allow for ease of use. To use the flowcharts, start with General Flowchart for Section 1, or jump to the General Flowchart for a section you are interested in. These General Flowcharts will lead you to the federal and state flowcharts you will need. The overview flowchart on the right will help you decide where to begin.

  • Use the filter on the left to begin access the roadmaps and tailor your search results
  • For more information on reading these flowcharts, Visit the "Getting Started" Section.
  • The Regulatory Roadmap is continually being updated and added to. Some flowcharts have not yet been developed, but placeholders have been created. If you have input on any of these processes, please feel free to login to make updates, or .


The flowcharts have been reviewed by relevant agency, developer and legal personnel, and are meant to serve as a guide to obtaining the permits needed for power plant and bulk transmission development and a way to communicate the process among interested parties.
