The Project includes a General Plan Amendment (PDS2018-GPA-18-010), a Zone Reclassification (PDS2018-REZ-18-007), and a Major Use Permit (PDS2018-MUP-18-022).
The JVR Energy Project involves the operation and construction of a 90 megawatt (MW) solar energy facility and a 20-MW energy storage system. The Project components include approximately 300,000 photovoltaic modules fitted on single axis trackers, an underground electrical collection system, a substation, an overhead gen-tie line, and access roads. The development footprint of the proposed facilities is approximately 691 acres. The Project would require a General Plan Amendment, a Rezone, and a Major Use Permit. Eventual decommissioning would occur at the end of the Project’s useful life. The Project site, approximately 1,345 total acres, is in unincorporated southeastern San Diego County. The area is located within the Mountain Empire Subregion of the County. The Project site is located adjacent to the community of Jacumba Hot Springs and the Jacumba Airport, and to the south of Interstate 8 (I-8). Primary access would be provided from I-8 with local access from Carrizo Gorge Road and Old Highway 80.
A public scoping meeting will be held to solicit comments on the EIR. The meeting will be held on March 21, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at the Highland Community Center, 44681 Old Highway 80,Jacumba Hot Springs.
