Present Land Use
General Plan Land Use Designation: I-E, Industrial Energy-Related; Zoning: I-E, Industrial-Scale Energy Production

Document Description
The Project would consist of up to four new wind turbines of up to 493 feet and would produce up to approximately 17 MW of wind energy. In addition to the new wind turbines, the Project would involve decommissioning of approximately 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 connection to an existing overhead SCE 12-kilovolt collection line system; installation of one new temporary and one new permanent meteorological tower, each up to 309 feet tall; and decommissioning of the new turbines at the end of their useful life.
