Document Description
Development of a solar energy center on 1,130 acres of mostly vacant but economically unviable agricultural land. Project would include land designated as agriculture. Project would include a facility consisting of ground mounted photovoltaic solar power generating system, supporting structures, operations and maintenance building, substation, water treatment facility, plant control system, meteorological station, and roads and fencing. The electric generating facility would connect to the Imperial Valley Substation via 230 kV transmission lines. The Imperial Valley Substation is isolated by federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The project plans a 120 foot wide Right-of-Way from the project site, along BLM land (BLM Utility Corridor "N") to the Imperial Valley Substation.
