Document Description
The project proposes to decommission and remove approx 291 existing commercial wind turbines and install up to 14 new commercial wind turbines up to 499 ft in height with a per turbine generating capacity of between 2.0 MW and 4.2 MW on land within the Wind Energy Resource (W-E) Zone. The existing wind turbines were originally installed and have been operating since the mid-1980's. The project also proposes to install ancillary equipment, including 3 temporary, guyed meteorological towers up to 309-ft in height, a temporary expansion of an existing laydown yard, construction of new temporary and permanent internal access roads, and a new electrical collection system integrating the proposed wind turbines to the electrical grid.
