Chevron Energy Solutions applied to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for a right-of-way on public lands to construct a solar photovoltaic power plant facility to be constructed on an approximate 516-acre site in San Bernardino County, Calif., approximately eight miles east of Lucerne Valley.  The project is expected to generate 45 megawatts of electricity, enough power for about 45,000 people.

The draft EIS also includes a proposed amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area Plan.  It analyzes the site-specific impacts on air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, water resources, geological resources and hazards, hazardous materials handling, land use, noise, and visual resources and transmission system engineering and transmission line safety.

Further details can be found at the BLM web page: http://www.ca.blm.gov/barstow.  For information contact Greg Thomsen at 951-697-5237, or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
