Document Description
FloDesign Wind Turbine Corp. has applied for a CUP for the repowering (i.e., removal and replacement) of 70-80 existing wind turbines equivalent to 4 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity with 40 mixer-ejector wind turbines (MEWTs) with a combined generating capacity of 4 MWs, to assess the functionality of the new turbine design and the extent to which it could reduce impacts on birds and bats compared to the existing turbines. The project includes an avian impact validation study funded by a grant from the CA Energy Commission. The CUP application is for only the 40 MEWTs; however, the EIR will programmatically evaluate the impacts of future repowering of an additional 32 MW of existing turbines and generating capacity.
