Proposed Action

VPC is proposing to design, construct, and operate geothermal well pads and wells, geothermal fluid pipelines, transmission lines, and their associated access roads. These facilities would be connected to a new 60 MW net geothermal power generation facility, to be located on a privately owned section of land within the Unit. The elements of the proposed action include: (1) Reclamation-managed lands: (a) Construct approximately 6 miles of access roads to support well pads, pipeline, and transmission line construction and access (b) Construct four to six new well pads and drill one to five wells per pad (c) Construct approximately 3.7 miles of 120 kV transmission line segments (d) Construct approximately 1.1 to 2.2 miles of geothermal fluid pipelines (2) State of Nevada-managed lands: (a) Construct approximately 2.2 miles of new access roads (b) Construct approximately 2.2 miles of 120 kV transmission line segments (3) Private land: (a) Construct 6.75 miles of access roads (b) Construct one to three new well pads and drill one to five wells per pad (c) Drill additional wells on six existing pads (d) Construct a 60 MW net power plant (e) Construct approximately 0.5 miles of 120 kV transmission line segment (f) Construct up to approximately 6.75 miles of geothermal fluid pipelines
