Document Description
Commercial WECS Permit No. 71, Revised Permit No. 10 proposes to install up to seven (7) new commercial wind turbines up to 499-feet in height with a total project generating capacity of 27 MW. These 7 new turbines would replace the 159 turbines currently on the site which are scheduled for decommissioning Q1 2021 under existing permits, including demolition permits issued by the County. The project also includes associated equipment such as existing on-site substation, temporary construction yard, and existing 220kV- transmission line. No work is proposed on existing interconnection line, and the project would use an existing access road from Haugen-Lehmann Way. Variance Case No. 200001 proposes to eliminate the setbacks along the western and northern lot lines as required by Zoning Ordinance No. 348.
