The Fountain Wind Project proposes to construct, operate, and ultimately decommission 100 wind turbines and associated infrastructure with a generating capacity of up to 347 MW under use permit 16-007. The project would be located on 76 Assessor parcels, which are privately owned, approx 6 mi west of Burney. In addition to the wind turbines, the project would include ancillary facilities such as transformers, lay-down areas, temporary batch plant(s), access roads, underground and overhead collector lines, an operation and maintenance building, and substation components. Additional project details are provided in the attached IS.
