Document Description
The project entails constructing, operating, and maintaining a 250-megawatt solar photovoltaic energy facility, including solar panel arrays, gathering power lines, a substation, access roads, buildings, two evaporation ponds, and an ~3 mile long generating tie-line to convey electricity to the existing Morro Bay-Midway transmission line. The project as original permitted would result in permanent impacts to 1,782 acres and temporary impacts to 80 acres of San Joaquin kit fox, giant kangaroo rat, and San Joaquin antelope squirrel habitat. The Incidental Take Permit and the previous four Amendments for this project, as issued by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project implementation. Minor Amendment No. 5 to the ITP extends the date by which the Permittee must preserve and endow Habitat Management (HM) lands for Phase 4 by six months, from December 31, 2013, to June 30, 2014; this amendment also authorizes the Permittee to execute or cause to be executed a land management easement to be granted to the land manager for the on-site HM lands.
