Document Description
The Redwood Cluster Solar Project is a proposal to construct and operate six solar photovoltaic (PV) power generating facilities that would generate a combined 135 megawatts (MW) of electricity, on six sites totaling 633 acres in unincorporated Kern County, California. The project sites are within the jurisdiction boundaries of the Kern County General Plan (KCGP) and the Metropolitan Bakersfield General Plan (MBGP). Five of the seven parcels are zoned A (Exclusive Agriculture) with the KCGP map code designation of 8.1 (Intensive Agriculture), 8.4 (Mineral and Petroleum), and 2.1 (Seismic Hazard). The remaining two parcels are zoned A-1 (Limited Agriculture) with the MBGP map code designation of R-IA (Resource Intensive Agriculture). The project includes two proposed General Plan Amendment to amend the Circulation Element in the KCGP and MBGP, one Zone Change (ZCC) from A-1 to A, six Conditional Use Permits, and one Williamson Act Land Use Contract Cancellation of 80 acres of prime farmland. The land has historically been used for agriculture purposes with three of the sites having existing oil wells.
