Document Description
Change of Zone No. 2000032 proposes to modify a 281.81-acre portion of an existing 600-acre parcel (APN 522-070-027) from Rural Residential (R-R) to Wind Energy (W-E). Commercial WECS Permit No. 200003 proposes removal of 93 existing Mitsubishi 600-kilowatt (kW) Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) and the subsequent installation of 16 Vestas 3.6 and 4.3 Megawatts (MWs) WTGs with a maximum height of 492 feet. Six (6) existing Mitsubishi 600 kW WTGs, located outside Riverside County jurisdiction, would remain during project operation. One additional existing WTG, originally permitted by the County under WECS 107, would remain operational. Section 18.41.D.3(e) of Ordinance No. 348 allows consideration to reduce the established scenic setbacks to 1.25 times the total WECS 492’ height, or 615 feet. The applicant has requested a setback reduction for two WTGs in the northeast portion of the project site to reduce the required scenic setback from 1,320 feet to 1,000 feet. Variance Case No. 210001 proposes to reduce the five (5) times rotor diameter wind access setback for one (1) existing WTG and five (5) new WTGs. Five (5) times the rotor diameter for the one-existing and five new WTGs would be 412.5 meters (1,353.35) feet and 585 meters (1,919.29 feet), respectively. The applicant proposes reducing the five (5) time rotor diameter wind access setback for the existing and new WTGs to a minimum of 110 meters (360.89 feet).
