The proposed project is the development of a 49.9 megawatt (MW-net) geothermal power plant and wellfield on 27.5 acres of privately owned agricultural land within the Salton Sea Known Geothermal Resources Area in Imperial County, California. The project would include a geothermal binary power plant composed of six (6) Ormat Energy Converters (OEC), an expanded geothermal well field beyond the six exploration wells, pipelines to bring the geothermal brine to the power plant, pipelines to take the cooled brine to injection wells, pipelines to distribute noncondensible gases from production wells to power plant area and injection wells, an electric transmission line to interconnect from the power plant substation to a switching yard, and a water pipeline to bring water from the Imperial Irrigation District (IID) East Highline canal to the power plant for cooling water.
