Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The project consists of two non-contiguous sites (Windhub Solar A and Windhub Solar B) that are located approx 0.5 mi apart. Windhub Solar A comprises privately owned parcels totaling approx 147.5 acres, while Windhub Solar B comprises one parcel owned by the CA State Lands Commission totaling approx 160 acres. The project proponent is requesting: a) a CUP (CUP 17, Map 197) to allow the construction and operation of an approx 20-MW solar pv electrical generating facility (section 19.12040.G) in an M-3 (Heavy industrial) district; and b) a CUP (CUP 18, Map 197) to allow the construction and operation of a communications tower on Windhub Solar A (Section 19.40.030F). A 20-MW solar pv electrical generating facility and a communications tower are also proposed on Windhub Solar B, which have also been accounted for in this EIR; however, CUPs are not applicable to Windhub Solar B as that site is not under the land use jurisdiction of Kern County.
