Document Description
Perform CUP amendment to allow for installation of two new water-cooled ORMAT Energy Converters (OECs) to replace six old units from 1992; three 10,000 gallon isopentane above ground storage tanks; and, additional pipes to connect the proposed facilities with the existing Heber 2 Geothermal Energy Complex. All proposed facilities would be developed within the existing Heber 2 Complex and fence line. The total project disturbance from developing the new facilities is approximately 4 acres. The CUP amendment application also proposes to renew the permitted life of the entire Heber 2 Complex to 30 years (2019-2049). The proposed facility upgrades would allow the Heber 2 Complex to run more efficiently and refurbish to the original nameplate capacity (33 megawatts).
