Document Description
The proposed project consists of two phases: the Initial Repower, evaluated in the EIR at a project level, and the Full Repower, evaluated at a program level. The Repowering project is the replacement of existing 1980s-'90s-era turbines using a new wind turbine technology referred to as shrouded turbines. The Initial Repower would replace between 70 and 80 old turbines on the project parcels with 40 new shrouded turbines and retain in place for at least one year the remaining 330 to 340 older turbines. The purpose of the Initial Repower is to facilitate an avian Validation Study to test and demonstrate the potential reduction in avian mortality that the new design could facilitate.
