Document Description
A change in zone classification to incorporate the Wind Energy (WE) combining district on approximately 3,854 acres of a 6,435-acre project site and approval of a conditional use permit (CUP) to allow temporary concrete batch plans to facilitate construction. Intent is to develop a 300 Megawatt (MW) wind energy plant consisting of a maximum of 300 wind turbines not to exceed 400 feet in height ranging in capacity from 1 MW to 2.8 MW each. Implementation of the request would also entail construction of a project substation, an interconnection yard/switching station, on and off-site access roads, control cables, subsurface feeder line corridors and transmission lines necessary to serve the project. The temporary batch plants would only be onsite during construction and would be used to provide concrete material for turbine, substation, operation and maintenance building foundations.
