SPL-2014-CHB-8-PORT OF LOS ANGELES SECTION 408 PROPOSAL

Published July 3, 2014
Expiration date: 8/22/2014
Pioneer Green Energy, through its affiliate, Pioneer Green Wind Assets, LLC (“Pioneer Green”), has submitted a Section 408 Permit Application, to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) for temporary modification of the Middle Breakwater for the purpose of gathering wind and other meteorological data in the vicinity of the Middle Breakwater. To obtain the data, Pioneer Green proposes to install two small electronic measurement systems on the Middle Breakwater for a period of two years. The units utilize laser beam technology to measure wind speed and direction to assess the viability of developing a wind power generation project along the Middle Breakwater that could produce clean electricity in support of State and Federal climate change regulations while meeting consumer demand for such clean electricity. Summaries of the data gathered from the Proposed Action would be provided to both the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the Port of Long Beach (POLB).  The measurement devices and appurtenances would be removed upon completion of the Project.
