Document Description
The project includes construction and operation of an 800 megawatt maximum wind energy generation facility. Major components of the project include up to 320 wind turbine generators, three or more electrical substations, meteorological towers, and one or two operations and concrete batch plants. Construction will result in 170.6 acres of permanent facilities and disturbance to an additional 378.5 acres, for a total of 549.1 acres of impacted desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) and Bakersfield cactus (Opuntia basilarus var. treleasei) habitat, and an additional 14.1 acres of habitat occupied by Bakersfield cactus, but not desert tortoise. The project is expected to result in the incidental take of individual desert tortoise and Bakersfield cactus, species designated respectively as threatened and endangered under the CESA.
