ACTION: Notice of availability. SUMMARY: The Department of the Interior (DOI), Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the California Energy Commission (CEC) have jointly released a Draft Environmental Impact VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:04 Apr 16, 2010 Jkt 220001 Statement (EIS)/Staff Assessment (SA), including a possible Draft Amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) Plan (1980, as amended), for the Calico Solar (formerly Stirling Energy Systems Solar One) Project, San Bernardino County, California. The Draft EIS/SA, prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (FLPMA), and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), evaluates the environmental impacts of constructing and operating an 850 megawatt (MW) solar power facility on 8,230 acres of BLM-administered land. The Draft EIS/ SA is jointly prepared by the BLM and the CEC in response to Calico Solar, LLC’s right-of-way (ROW) application to the BLM and its Application for Certification (AFC) to the CEC. DATES: The publication of the EPA’s Notice of Availability of this Draft EIS in the Federal Register initiates a 90day public comment period. To ensure that comments will be considered, the BLM must receive written comments on the Draft EIS/SA and plan amendment within 90 days following the date the EPA publishes its Notice of Availability in the Federal Register. The BLM will announce future meetings or hearings and any other public involvement activities at least 15 days in advance through public notices, media releases, and/or mailings. ADDRESSES: Copies of the Calico Solar Project Draft EIS/SA are available from the BLM Barstow Field Office, 2601 Barstow Road, Barstow, California 92311. The document may also be viewed at public libraries in San Bernardino County, Sacramento, Fresno, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Eureka, and San Diego, California. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jim Stobaugh, BLM Project Manager, by mail: P.O. Box 12000, Reno, Nevada 89520; phone: (775) 861–6478; or e-mail: Jim_Stobaugh@blm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 14, 2007, SES Solar Six, LLC and SES Solar Three, LLC submitted applications for ROW grants to the BLM to construct and operate a concentrated solar dish power plant facility on Federal public lands in San Bernardino County, California. The two ROW application areas were subsequently combined into one project (SES Solar One) proposed for an 8,230-acre site located immediately north of Interstate 40, approximately 37 miles east of Barstow, California. On December 2, 2008, SES Solar One, LLC (SES Solar Three, LLC and SES Solar Six, LLC) submitted an PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 AFC to the CEC to construct and operate the SES Solar One Project. In January 2010, the project name was formally changed to Calico Solar as a result of SES Solar Three, LLC merging with SES Solar Six, LLC to create Calico Solar, LLC. The proposed action is to construct an 850-MW, 8,230-acre (13 square mile) solar energy facility on BLMadministered land. Approximately 1,718 acres of public land within the proposed project area were either donated to the BLM or acquired by the BLM with Land and Water Conservation Funds (LWCF). The project proposal includes building about 34,000, 25-kilowatt Stirling solar dish systems. Each solar dish system consists of an approximately 38-foot high by 40-foot wide solar concentrator dish that supports an array of curved glass mirrors. These mirrors would automatically track the sun and focus solar energy onto a power conversion unit that generates electricity. The Calico Solar Project would also include a number of related facilities and infrastructure, including: • A new 230-kilovolt (kV) Calico Substation; approximately 2 miles of single-circuit 230-kV transmission line to connect the new Calico Substation to the existing Southern California Edison (SCE) Pisgah Substation; • Project roads and fencing; • An administration building; and • A 45,000 square foot main services complex. Approximately 739 feet of the new 230-kV transmission line would be outside of the project area. The solar facility would operate for about 20 years based on the Purchase Power Agreement signed with SCE on August 9, 2005. Upgrades to the SCE transmission system are needed to transmit the electricity generated from the Calico Solar Project. These upgrades would take place outside the Calico Solar project area. The BLM is considering amending the CDCA Plan as part of the proposed action. The CDCA Plan requires that all sites associated with power generation or transmission not identified in the CDCA Plan be considered through the BLM land use planning amendment process. If the BLM decides to approve the ROW grant, the BLM would also amend the CDCA Plan, as required. The BLM’s proposed action in the Draft EIS/ SA is to authorize the 850-MW Calico Solar Project and approve the CDCA Plan amendment in response to the application received from Calico Solar, LLC. The action alternatives include: (1) The proposed action (as described above); (2) a 720-MW, 6,512-acre (10.2 E:\FR\FM\19APN1.SGM 19APN1
