The Project entails constructing, operation, 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 approximately three-mile long generation tie-line to convey electricity to the existing Morro Bay-Midway transmission line. The Project as originally permitted would result in permanent impacts to 1,782 acres and temporary impacts to 80 acres of San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica), giant kangaroo rat (Dipodomys ingens), and San Joaquin antelope squirrel (Ammospermophilus nelsoni) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of San Joaquin kit fox and San Joaquin antelope squirrel, which are designated as threatened species, and giant kangaroo rat, which is designated as an endangered species, under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The incidental Take Permit and the previous six amendments (collectively referred to herein as "ITP") 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 Amendments No. 7 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, 2014 to June 30, 2015.
