Document Description
NOTE: Review Extended Per Lead Note: Review Per Lead The proposed project consists of two primary components: 1) a sugarcane and sweet sorghum-to-ethanol, electricity and bio-methane facility; and, 2) 41,000 acres of sugarcane supplemented by 33,000 acres of sweet sorghum. Both crops will be grown in the Imperial Valley. The ethanol, electricity and bio-methane facility involves a CUP that will allow for the construction and operation of a 66 million gallon per year ethanol facility. The operation will generate 49.9 megawatts of renewable electricity, 33.6 MW of which will be available for sale into the electrical grid on an annual basis. The facility will also produce 930 million cubic feet of bio-methane and 28,000 tons of inorganic fertilizer annually.
