Seguro Storage Major Use Permit

PDS2023-MUP-23-012, LOG NO. PDS2023-ER-23-08-002

The Project includes a Major Use Permit (PDS2023-MUP-23-012).

The project is a Major Use Permit to construct, operate, and maintain a 400-megawatt (MW) battery storage facility and consists of the development of a battery energy storage system (BESS) that would interconnect to the San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) Escondido Substation via a proposed Project generation tie (gen-tie) line (Project). The Project site is approximately 22.55 acres in size and the gen-tie line is approximately 1 mile in length. As the Project is refined, the gen-tie corridor will be revised to a single route, but for the purposes of evaluating impacts, the entire corridor is being evaluated. The Project is within the San Dieguito Community Planning area, within the Semi-Rural Regional Category, and is subject to the Semi-Rural Residential (SR-2) Land Use Designation. Zoning for the site is Limited Agriculture (A70). The Project is located west of Country Club Drive, between Country Club Drive and Huston Ranch (a private road). Access would be provided by Country Club Drive, a County maintained road. Consistent with Section 21083.9 of the CEQA Statutes, a public scoping meeting will be held to solicit comments on the NOP. This meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. at the theater of Del Lago Academy located at 1740 Scenic Trail Way, Escondido, CA 92029. Comments on this NOP document must be received no later than Monday, December 4, 2023 at 4:00 p.m. (a 38-day public review period).
