Document Description
The proposed project is a renewable energy development that would generate up to 230 megawatts (MW) of electricity through the use of wind power on a 3,773-acre project site. Specifically, the applicant is requesting a: (a) change in zone classification from E(20) RS (Estate 20 Acres - Residential Suburban Combining) to A (Exclusive Agriculture) and A WE (Exclusive Agriculture - Wind Energy Combining) in Map 198; (b) change in zone classification from A to A WE District in Map 198; (c) change in zone classification from A to A WE in Map 215; (d) change in zone classification from A to A WE in map 216, and (e) conditional use permit to allow for the use of termporary batch plants during the construction of the wind energy facility. The requested applications would allow for the construction and use of ancillary wind energy facilities and supporting infrastructure. The project would be supported by a 230-kV overhead transmission corridor that would be connected to the existing Southern Californai Edison (SCE) Windhub Substation. The project's permanent facilities would include up to 76 wind turbine generators, service roads, a power collection system, communication cable, overhead and underground transmission lines, electrical switchyards, project substations, meteorological towers, and operations and maintenance facilities.
