Hearing set for pair of solar power facilities

PALMDALE - Solar power facilities totalling 45 acres are proposed by Salt Lake City-based sPower north and east of Air Force Plant 42.

One facility is proposed to cover 20 acres of farmland a quarter mile south of the Lancaster National Soccer Center at 30th Street East and Avenue L, and the other to cover 25 acres of old farmland south of Avenue P and east of 110th Street East, which is within three-quarters of a mile of two existing solar fields.

The two proposals, filed under the names of limited liability companies named Green Beanworks C and Green Beanworks D, are scheduled for public hearings before a hearing officer at 3 p.m. Thursday at Palmdale City Hall's Council Chamber, 38300 Sierra Highway, Suite B.

City officials are proposing to adopt what is called a "mitigated negative declaration," which says no environmental impact report will be prepared because of measures that will reduce the projects' potential effects.

Both facilities will be required to follow Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District rules for keeping down dust, city reports said.

The facility south of Avenue L will be 0.6 miles from the closest homes, a city report said. The facility on Avenue P is a mile from the closet homes. Both areas are zoned for industry, though one is used for farming now and the other was years earlier.

Both facilities will send electricity to existing power lines, one following 30th Street East and the other following 110th Street East, the report said.

Copies of the applications, maps, plans, environmental documents and other materials are available for public review at the Palmdale Planning Division, 38250 Sierra Highway, and staff reports on the projects at the Palmdale City Library, 700 East Palmdale Blvd., City Hall, and the Palmdale Recreation and Culture office, 38260 10th St. East.

Prior to Thursday's hearings, members of the public may submit written comments to the Planning Division.
