CED Westside BES Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Document Description
The Project would be comprised of lithium-ion and/or flow battery energy storage system facilities, a behind-the-meter solar energy facility, a new on-site 230 kilovolt (kV) loop-in switching station, a 34.5 kV to 230 kV Project substation, underground electrical cables, and permanent vehicular access to and from the Project Site over a proposed clear-span bridge spanning IID’s Westside Main Canal. The proposed loop-in switching station would connect the Project to the existing IID Campo Verde-Imperial Valley 230 kV radial gen-tie line, which connects to the Imperial Valley (IV) Substation and the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), approximately one-third mile south of the Project Site. CED has submitted the necessary Interconnection Request Applications to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) and Imperial Irrigation District (IID). The Project compliments both the existing operational renewable energy facilities, and those planned for future development in the County, and supports the broader Southern California’s bulk electric transmission system by serving as a firm, dispatchable resource.
