Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The zoning is Timber Production (TP) and the General Plan Land Use Designation is Timber (T)
Document Description
The request is to amend Use Permit 166-84 to construct a 93-foot-long by 27-foot-wide photovoltaic solar array, six (6) 35.42-foot-tall ground-mounted small wind turbines (43.42-foot tip height as measured from finished grade to vertical tip of the blade), wind and solar energy inverters and eleven (11) lithium batteries to be located in an existing utility building to serve as back-up power for an existing commercial wireless telecommunications facility. The solar array, wind turbines, and batteries are proposed to serve as an unmanned standby generator for the purpose of providing backup power for the commercial wireless telecommunications facility in the event that energy from the electric grid is not available. The system components would generate 36 kilowatts (turbines) and 30 kilowatts (solar array) for a total of 66 kilowatts of generating capacity and incorporate a battery system with 30 kilowatts of capacity for energy storage. A 5,000-gallon water storage tank would be installed to provide fire protection water for the project. Portions of the project site are currently developed with large turbines that are part of the Hatchet Ridge Wind project. In addition, the project site includes two radio towers and two wireless telecommunication facilities that are not a part of this project. The existing lattice radio tower includes an adjacent 1,986-square-foot building approved under Use Permit (UP166-84). The proposed use would utilize the existing access from Bunchgrass Lookout Road.
