Document Description
IP Oberon, LLC, a subsidiary of Intersect Power, LLC, proposes to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission a 500 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generating station, battery energy storage facility, electrical substation, gen-tie lines and associated access roads on approximately 5,000 acres of BLM-managed land in Riverside County, California. The proposed Oberon Renewable Energy Project would interconnect to Southern California Edison's (SCE) 500 kV Red Bluff Substation via one new 500 kV gen-tie line. The proposed 500-kV gen-tie line would be located within one 175-foot ROW, running southeast from the solar facility, across BLM-administered land, to the existing SCE Red Bluff Substation. All of the lands within the Project application area are within the California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) Planning Area, within a Development Focus Area (DFA) pursuant to the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP) and associated ROD.
