Document Description
The project involves the construction, operation and maintenance, and decommissioning of a 280-mw solar power generating facility on approximately 2,367 acres of undeveloped grassland. The project is composed of three main components: solar development areas, a transmission line corridor, an access road, and a utility corridor. The project will result in impacts to 2,367 acres of San Joaquin kit fox and California tiger salamander habitat including temporary impacts to 213 acres; the project will permanently remove 2,154 acres of SJKF and CTS habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of SJKF and CTS, which are designated as a threatened species under the California Endangered Species Act (CESA). The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of project implementation.
