Soda Mountain Solar Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Undeveloped Government Land/Resource Conservation (RC)
The project proposes the construction, operation, maintenance, and future decommissioning of a 300-megawatt (MW) photovoltaic solar facility with a 300-MW battery energy storage and related facilities on approximately 1,490 acres of land administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the unincorporated portion of San Bernardino County, approximately 6 miles southwest of the town of Baker, California, along Interstate 15. The proposed project would operate year-round and would generate electricity during daylight hours. The proposed project would generate and deliver solar-generated power to the regional electrical grid through an interconnection with the existing Mead-Adelanto 500-kilovolt transmission line operated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
