Document Description
The applicants are requesting a change in zone classification on approximately 13,704 acres in order to allow for the construction of up to 150 wind turbine generators which would generate up to 325.5 megawatts (MW) of energy. Implementation of the request would also entail construction of an onsite collector substation, internal service roads, an O&M facility, communication system cables, use of existing temporary meteorological towers (in operation up to three years), an electrical/power collection system. The project would also include approximately 10 miles of new gen-tie line to connect to the existing North Sky River Substation. A conditional use permit is required for temporary concrete batch plants.
