NOP - Notice of Preparation
Present Land Use
An existing wind farm with 69 operational wind turbines. Existing Zoning and General Plan Designations of the project site are: Industrial Energy-Related (I-E).

Document Description
The project would consist of up to four new wind turbines of up to 493 ft and would produce up to approx 17 MW of wind energy. The approx 160-acre project site is bordered by undeveloped land to the north, south, and west, and MWD facilities to the east. Downtown Desert Hot Springs is located approx 6 mi east of the project site, and the I-10/SR 62 interchange is located approx 2.2 mi to the south. Primary access to the project site would continue to be provided via an existing private access off Windhaven Rd. The project site consists of the APN 667-160-001. In addition to the installation of new wind turbines, the project would involve decommissioning of approx 69 existing wind turbines and the appropriate ancillary equipment; connecting new turbines to an existing substation (located on APN 516-030-014) through either a new underground or overhead collection line system (or combination thereof) or a new temporary and one new permanent meteorological tower, each up to 309 ft tall; and decommissioning of the new turbines at the end of their useful life.
