Project includes repowering the existing wind energy facility to replace outdated wind turbine generators (WTG) with fewer and more efficient WTGs. The project involves decommissinoing a maximum of 324 existing WTGs and repowering by installing up to 28 new WTGs at new pad sites. AFter repowering, the Project will have up to 40.8 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity. Project includes building new access roads, widening existing roads, constructing new laydown yards, installing underground electrical collector lines, installing culverts on stream crossings, condcuting horizontal directional drilling, installing meteorological towers, and improving related infrastructure. Project will result in total impacts to 198.86 acres of CA tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) and San Joaquin kit fox (Vulpes macrotis mutica) habitat, including temporary impacts to 152.35 acres and permanent impacts to 46.51 acres of habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of CA tiger salamander and San Joaquin kit fox, which are both designated as threatened species under CESA. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of project implementation.
