Document Description
IP Athos, LLC ("Applicant"), a subsidiary of Intersect Power, proposes to construct, operate, and decommission the Athos Renewable Energy Project, which includes a large scale solar photovoltaic (PV) electrical generating and storage facility and associated infrastructure to generate and delivery renewable electricity to the statewide electricity transmission grid. The proposed project, a PV solar power plant and 11-mile long 220 kV gen-tie transmission line, would be located on approx. 3,400 acres across 7 non-contiguous groups of parcels northeast of the community of Desert Center. The project would consist of a solar fields, inverters, powerlines, 4 substations, an O&M Building, access roads, telecommunications facilities, and related equipment. The facility would generate and provide storage for 500 megawatts of renewable energy using PV technology. The power produced by the Project would be conveyed to the statewide power grid via interconnection to the SCE Red Bluff substation, an existing substation located south of I-10 and approx. 1.1 miles south of the Project area. As part of the project, the applicant is also seeking to vacate interior roadways and merge contiguous project parcels. Roads along the project perimeter on the solar facility lands would remain dedicated public access.
