The Project would be located approximately 2.75 miles southwest of the City of Blythe, just south of the Interstate 10 freeway, in Riverside County, California.  The Project involves construction of a 450 MW solar facility and a 2.8 mile long 230 kilovolt transmission line that would connect with Southern California Edison’s Colorado Substation.  The Project would require 89 acres for temporary construction. After construction, the Project would occupy up to 3,614 acres of BLM land and 154 acres of private land under the jurisdiction of the County of Riverside. Once completed, the Project would also include an operations and maintenance building, an on-site substation, internal access roads, and ancillary facilities. Existing roads would be used to access the site.
