Sand Hill Wind, LLC has applied for a Conditional Use Permit for the repowering (removal and replacement) of 73 existing wind turbines equivalent to 4 megawatts (MW) of generating capacity with 40 shrouded wind turbines with a combined generating capacity of 4 MW, 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 the repower of the 40 shrouded turbines (Initial Repower); however, the EIR also programmatically evaluates the impacts of future repowering of existing turbines up to an additional 30 MW of generating capacity (Full Repower).
