This proposed Project involves construction, operation, and maintenance of an approx. 247 megawatt solar photovoltaic energy facility, including solar panel arrays, a substation, project roads, and perimeter fencing. The Project will result in permanent impacts to 1,688.2 acres and temporary impacts to 465.8 acres of San Joaquin kit fox (SJKF) (Vulpes macrotis mutica), giant kangaroo rat (GKR) (Dipodmys ingens), CA tiger salamander (CTS) (Ambystoma californiense), and San Joaquin antelope squirrel (SJAS) (Ammospermophilus nelsoni) habitat; the Project will permanently remove 1022.4 acres of SJKF, GKR, CTS, and SJAS habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of SJKF, CTS, and SJAS habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of SJKF, CTS, and SJAS, which are designated as threatened species and GKR, which is designated as an endangered species under the CESA. Amendment No. 3, a Major Amendment, reduces the extent of the project from 2,154 acres to 1244.6 acres and reduces the habitat mitigation requirements. The incidental take permit referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of Project Implementation.
