Document Description
NOTES: Review per Lead/Final Palo Verde Solar l (applicant) has filed an application for a ROW to construct, operate, maintain and decommission the BSPP and bundled double circuit 230 kV power transmission line (gen-tie) on BLM-administered land. The BSPP would consist of four adjacent, independent, identical power block units (Units) of 250 MW nominal capacity each for a total nominal capacity of 1,000 MW commercial solar parabolic through generating station and ancillary facilities. The Applicant proposes to develop the BSPP in four phases, which are designed to generate a combined total of approximately 1000 MW of electricity. The first two phases of the proposed action, BSPP Units 1 and 2, are designed to provide a combined total of approximately 500 MW of electricity and would occupy an estimated 1600 acres each; the third and fourth phases, BSPP Units 3 and 4, would provide a combined total of approximately 500 MW of electricity and occupy an estimated 1200 acres each.
