Document Description
Stauss Wind., LLC, an affiliate of BayWa r.e. Wind, LLC, proposes to construct and operate a 102 megawatt (MW) wind energy project south of the City of Lompoc. The Project site is the location of the previously proposed Lompoc Wind Energy Project (LWEP, 06CUP-00000-00009), which was approved by the County in 2009 but never constructed. A Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was prepared for the LWEP and certified by the County in February 2009 County EIR No. 06EIR-00000-00004. The SWEP environmental review is a supplement to the LWEP EIR. See NOC for full details.
