Document Description
The proposed project would be located on BLM-administered lands in Riverside County about 6 miles north of the rural community of Desert Center, California. The overall site layout and generalized land uses would include a substation, an administration building, operations and maintenance facilities, a transmission line, and temporary construction lay down areas, with a total proposed project footprint of ~1,280 acres. The project's 230-kilovolt (kV) generation interconnection transmission line would either be via the First Solar Desert Sunlight 230 kV gen-tie (as a shared facility), or would be located on private and BLM-administered lands and would utilize a planned 230-to 500 kV substation (referred to as the Red Bluff Substation). The Red Bluff Substation would connect the project to the Southern California Edison regional transmission grid.
