Document Description
Note: Joint Document - EIR/EA Development of a solar energy center on 946.6 gross acres of privately-owned undeveloped and agricultural lands. Project would include a facility consisting of a 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 plants a 12-foot-wide Right-of-Way from the project site, along BLM land to the Imperial Valley Substation. The project proponent is also requesting construction and operational access to the solar energy facility via use of an existing dirt road located along the west side of the Westside Main Canal, located within BLM lands. This road will be viewed by five additional feet and upgraded.
