Document Description
The project includes installing and operating arrays of photovoltaic modules and associated electrical production and transmission infrastructure. The project will tie directly into the existing Pacific Gas and Electric Morro Bay/Midway 230 kV transmission line. Project construction will take ~3 years. The project will result in impacts to 3,510 acres of San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of San Joaquin kit fox, which is designated as a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The ITP for the Project, as issued by the Department of Fish and Game, authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation.
