SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Desert Sunlight Holdings, LLC has requested a 19,516-acre right-of-way (ROW) to construct and operate the DSSF 550megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) facility and associated 220-kilovolt (kV) generation interconnection line (gen-tie line), and to facilitate the construction and operation by Southern California Edison (SCE) of a new 500- to 220-kV Red Bluff Substation where the project would interconnect with the SCE regional transmission system. The DSSF power generation site would encompass 4,245 acres. The power generation site would consist of several components: A main generation area which includes PV arrays, WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:33 Aug 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 combining switchgear, overhead lines, and access corridors; an operations and maintenance facility; a solar energy visitor center; an on-site substation where the voltage of the generated electricity would be stepped up to 220 kV to match that of the transmission line; and site security and fencing. The transmission line from the project would transmit the electricity to the regional transmission system through the Red Bluff Substation where the power would feed into SCE’s existing Devers-Palo Verde 1 (DPV1) 500-kV transmission line. The length of the transmission line would be 12.2 miles long involving 236 acres. The Red Bluff Substation would consist of a 500/220 kV substation on approximately 90 acres, with an additional 20 to 30 acres for related features including access roads and drainage control. Substation features include: Connection of the project tranmission line into the substation; transmission lines to connect the substation to the DPV1 line; modification of DPV1 towers near the substation; construction of an electric distribution line for substation light and power; and installation of telecommunications facilities. The DSSF project would be located approximately six miles north of Interstate Highway 10 and the rural community of Desert Center in Riverside County. The project area is within two miles of Joshua Tree National Park. The Draft EIS analyzes the direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts to the environment. Three action alternatives and three no project alternatives are analyzed in the Draft EIS. Alternatives include: • The proposed action; • A modified proposed action with an alternative transmission line route and substation location; • A modified proposed action with a reduced project footprint (3,045 acres) and reduced output (413 MW); • No action with no plan amendment to the CDCA plan; • No project approval with a plan amendment to the CDCA plan to make the project area unsuitable for solar energy projects; and • No project approval with a plan amendment to the CDCA plan to make the project area suitable for other solar energy projects. The BLM’s purpose and need for the DSSF project is to respond to Desert Sunlight Holdings’ application under Title V of FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1761) for a ROW grant to construct, operate, and decommission a solar PV facility on public lands in compliance with PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52777 FLPMA, NEPA, BLM ROW and land use planning regulations, and other applicable laws and regulations. The BLM will decide whether to approve, approve with modification, or deny a ROW grant to Desert Sunlight Holdings for the proposed DSSF project. The BLM will also consider amending the CDCA Plan to make the project area (or portions) either available or unavailable to future solar development. The CDCA Plan (1980, as amended), while recognizing the potential compatibility of solar generation facilities with other uses on public lands, requires that all sites proposed for power generation or transmission not already identified in the plan be considered through the plan amendment process. If the BLM decides to grant a ROW, the BLM would amend the CDCA Plan as required based on guidance in the BLM Land Use Planning Handbook (H 1601–1). The inventory for wilderness characteristics was updated and the project area was found to lack wilderness characteristics. A Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS and possible CDCA plan amendment for the DSSF was published in the Federal Register on January 13, 2010 (75 FR 1801). This was followed by a 30-day public scoping period which ended February 13, 2010. Scoping meetings were held on January 28, 2010, in Palm Desert, California. Numerous public scoping comments were received. The main concerns identified during scoping included potential impacts to biological, visual, water, and air resources, wilderness characteristics and cumulative impacts resulting from the potential development of the Interstate Highway 10 corridor. The issues and concerns identified in the scoping comments were addressed in the Draft EIS. Please note that public comments and information submitted including names, street addresses, and e-mail addresses of persons who submit comments will be available for public review and disclosure at the above address during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays, and at the following Web site: http://www.blm.gov/ca.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Desert Sunlight Holdings, LLC has requested 
a 19,516-acre right-of-way (ROW) to construct and operate the DSSF 550-
megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) facility and associated 220-
kilovolt (kV) generation interconnection line (gen-tie line), and to 
facilitate the construction and operation by Southern California Edison 
(SCE) of a new 500- to 220-kV Red Bluff Substation where the project 
would interconnect with the SCE regional transmission system.
    The DSSF power generation site would encompass 4,245 acres. The 
power generation site would consist of several components: A main 
generation area which includes PV arrays, combining switchgear, 
overhead lines, and access corridors; an operations and maintenance 
facility; a solar energy visitor center; an on-site substation where 
the voltage of the generated electricity would be stepped up to 220 kV 
to match that of the transmission line; and site security and fencing.
    The transmission line from the project would transmit the 
electricity to the regional transmission system through the Red Bluff 
Substation where the power would feed into SCE's existing Devers-Palo 
Verde 1 (DPV1) 500-kV transmission line. The length of the transmission 
line would be 12.2 miles long involving 236 acres.
    The Red Bluff Substation would consist of a 500/220 kV substation 
on approximately 90 acres, with an additional 20 to 30 acres for 
related features including access roads and drainage control. 
Substation features include: Connection of the project tranmission line 
into the substation; transmission lines to connect the substation to 
the DPV1 line; modification of DPV1 towers near the substation; 
construction of an electric distribution line for substation light and 
power; and installation of telecommunications facilities.
    The DSSF project would be located approximately six miles north of 
Interstate Highway 10 and the rural community of Desert Center in 
Riverside County. The project area is within two miles of Joshua Tree 
National Park. The Draft EIS analyzes the direct, indirect, and 
cumulative impacts to the environment. Three action alternatives and 
three no project alternatives are analyzed in the Draft EIS. 
Alternatives include:
     The proposed action;
     A modified proposed action with an alternative 
transmission line route and substation location;
     A modified proposed action with a reduced project 
footprint (3,045 acres) and reduced output (413 MW);
     No action with no plan amendment to the CDCA plan;
     No project approval with a plan amendment to the CDCA plan 
to make the project area unsuitable for solar energy projects; and
     No project approval with a plan amendment to the CDCA plan 
to make the project area suitable for other solar energy projects.

The BLM's purpose and need for the DSSF project is to respond to Desert 
Sunlight Holdings' application under Title V of FLPMA (43 U.S.C. 1761) 
for a ROW grant to construct, operate, and decommission a solar PV 
facility on public lands in compliance with FLPMA, NEPA, BLM ROW and 
land use planning regulations, and other applicable laws and 
regulations. The BLM will decide whether to approve, approve with 
modification, or deny a ROW grant to Desert Sunlight Holdings for the 
proposed DSSF project. The BLM will also consider amending the CDCA 
Plan to make the project area (or portions) either available or 
unavailable to future solar development. The CDCA Plan (1980, as 
amended), while recognizing the potential compatibility of solar 
generation facilities with other uses on public lands, requires that 
all sites proposed for power generation or transmission not already 
identified in the plan be considered through the plan amendment 
process. If the BLM decides to grant a ROW, the BLM would amend the 
CDCA Plan as required based on guidance in the BLM Land Use Planning 
Handbook (H 1601-1). The inventory for wilderness characteristics was 
updated and the project area was found to lack wilderness 
characteristics.
    A Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS and possible CDCA plan 
amendment for the DSSF was published in the Federal Register on January 
13, 2010 (75 FR 1801). This was followed by a 30-day public scoping 
period which ended February 13, 2010. Scoping meetings were held on 
January 28, 2010, in Palm Desert, California. Numerous public scoping 
comments were received.
    The main concerns identified during scoping included potential 
impacts to biological, visual, water, and air resources, wilderness 
characteristics and cumulative impacts resulting from the potential 
development of the Interstate Highway 10 corridor. The issues and 
concerns identified in the scoping comments were addressed in the Draft 
EIS.
    Please note that public comments and information submitted 
including names, street addresses, and e-mail addresses of persons who 
submit comments will be available for public review and disclosure at 
the above address during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), 
Monday through Friday, except holidays, and at the following Web site: 
http://www.blm.gov/ca.
    Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying 
information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can 
ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so.
