Imperial Solar Energy Center South

Imperial Solar Energy Center (ISEC) South is the construction of an up to 200 megawatt photovoltaic (PV) solar energy facility, a 1.7-mile long transmission line, and improvement of an existing dirt road on a 946.6-acre site on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and private land in Imperial County, California. Due to the location of the line on BLM land, the Environmental Compliance Program (ECP) required monitoring and reporting prior to and during removal. For San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) to adhere to the Mitigation Monitoring, Compliance, and Reporting Program (MMCRP) of the ECP, UltraSystems: 1) tracked implementation of mitigation measures; 2) performed biological, archaeological, and paleontological monitoring; 3) prepared an implemented the Worker Environmental Awareness Program (WEAP) training; and 4) developed a database and management tools to coordinate and streamline field monitoring, personnel training, safety monitoring, resource and tracking, and GIS mapping.
