NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Use: grazing & dry land farming; Zoning: A (Agriculture); GP des.: Large Parcel Agric. (85%); Res. Mgmt. & Water Mgmt.
Application for Conditional Use Permit for construction of solar energy production (up to 100 MW) facility with related battery storage using photovoltaic panels over a mostly contiguous 533-acre portion of the 747-acre site. An estimated 153-acre portion of the whole site will be subdivided as a non-development area. Other areas are sloped or unsuited for development, such as the flood plain for Cayetano Creek. Single-axis tracker racks, approximately 8 feet in height will be used. A project substation and battery area will border an existing PG&E substation. The panels will allow sheep grazing and honey-bee foraging. Panels will be set back 50' from North Livermore and Manning Roads.
