Planning Commission Approves East Mission Road Battery Storage Project

The county’s Planning Commission approved a 40-megawatt battery energy storage facility in the 1400 block of East Mission Road.

The official 7-0 Planning Commission vote June 26 was to deny an appeal of the Feb. 5 Zoning Administrator approval and grant the Minor Use Permit for the AES Energy Storage project. The Feb. 5 decision of Zoning Administrator Eric Lardy also adopted an environmental Mitigated Negative Declaration, and the Planning Commission denial of the appeal upholds the MND.
