Document Description
Construction and operation of a 350- to 450- megawatt solar photovoltaic energy-generating facility and an associated 230-kV generation interconnection transmission line with up to two circuits and associated fiberoptic communications located within the perimeter of Edward Air Force Base. A 6,000-acre area has been identified as the potential location and will be studied, but the final footprint is expected to be 4,000-acre or less to minimize potential environmental impacts. The proposed gen-tie line would run approximately 13.5-miles across publicly- and privately-owned property in unincorporated Kern County to the Southern California Edison Windhub Substation located on Oak Creek Road.
