Document Description
The applicant is proposing to construct, operate and decommission a 500 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) electrical generation and storage facility, and associated infrastructure to generate and deliver renewable electricity to the statewide electricity transmission grid at Southern California Edison's Red Bluff Substation. The proposed project is located on approx. 3,440 acres across 7 groups of non-contiguous parcels in the Desert Center area of Riverside County. Approx. 7 miles of the project's 11-mile gen-tie transmission line leading to Red Bluff Substation would traverse federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and require a Right-of-Way Grant. The BLM will prepare and rely on its own environmental review document in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
