Document Description
This proposed Project involves the construction and operation and maintenance of six solar facilities on a total of 7.86 acres, including electrical connection corridors. Project will result in permanent impacts to 6.50 acres of moderate to high and 1.35 acres of extremely low desert tortoise (Gopherus agassizii) and Mojave ground squirrel (Spermophilus mohavensis) habitat. The Project is expected to result in incidental take of desert tortoise and Mojave ground squirrel, which are designated as threatened species under the 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.
