Chevron Energy Solutions (CES) is proposing to develop a 45-megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) plant and associated facilities on 516 acres of federal land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The site of CES’s proposed action is located on unincorporated land in the Mojave Desert, approximately eight miles east of Lucerne Valley in San Bernardino County, Calif.
The BLM will decide whether to approve, approve with modification, or deny issuance of a right of way (ROW) grant to CES for the proposed solar project. The decision the BLM will make is whether or not to grant a ROW and if so, under what terms and conditions, and whether to amend the California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) land-use plan in two potential ways.
First, the Environmental Impact Statement will be used to consider whether the CDCA Plan should be amended to designate the lands as suitable or unsuitable for solar energy development. Second, CES’s proposal would reroute a portion of Zircon Road, a currently designated route of travel. Also included in the proposal is an interconnection to an existing Southern California Edison distribution line located north of the site.
