Document Description
The Project as approved by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), and as originally issued to Alta Wind X, LLC; Alta Wind XI, LLC; Alta Wind XIII, LLC; and Alta Wind XIV, LLC (Permittee) for the Alta East and Northern Portion of Alta Infill II Wind Energy Project in May 2013, involves the construction and installation of wind turbine generators (WTGs) and supporting infrastructure to operate them as a wind power generation facility. The ITP authorizes take of Bakersfield cactus (Opuntia basilaris var. treleasei) and desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii), species designated as endangered and threatened, respectively, under the California Endangered Species Act. Minor Amendment No. 4 revises the Permittee and Contact Person information to reflect the transfer in ownership of the Alta East and Northern Portion of Alta Infill II Wind Energy Project and extends the deadline for the required acquisition, protection and transfer of all HM lands and recordation of any required conservation easement from November 23, 2014 to May 23, 2015. CDFW issued the ITP and Minor Amendment No. 4 as a responsible agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) relying on an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared and certified for the Project by the lead agency, County of Kern.
