Document Description
The applicant is requesting a change in zone classification on approximately 2,772-acres of a 9,300 acre site, in order to allow for the construction of up to 320 wind turbine generators which would generate ~600 to 800 MW of energy. 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. The batch plants would require the approval of a Conditional Use Permit.
