Document Description
Kern County and the Bureau of Land Management have jointly prepared a DEIS/EIR for general plan amendments, zone changes, and a CUP to allow for the construction of up to 106 wind turbines which would generate a maximum of 318 megawatts of energy. The project consists of 2,592 acres, of which 2,024-acres are located on federally-owned BLM land, with the remaining 568-acres being located on privately-owned land. Request includes the construction of ancillary facilities and supporting infrastructure and the concrete batch plants are necessary to provide concrete and materials for turbine, system block, substation, and building foundations. The application also proposes to incorporate flood hazard zoning for areas subject to flooding. Access to the project is provided by SR 58. The project will also include the construction of 14 miles of 230-kV overhead transmission corridor, which would ultimately connect to the SCE Windhub Substation.
