Avangrid Renewables Empire Solar Project
Avangrid Renewables is proposing a new solar array in Crook County, Oregon. The 530-acre project study area coincides with big game winter range, which is ODFW Category II habitat. MB&G provided a wetland and waters field investigation, as well as a wildlife habitat assessment to determine habitat types, quality, and use by big game and other species. The results of the assessment were used to prepare a Wildlife Impact Mitigation Plan that describes the habitat, wildlife use, avoidance and minimization measures, and a mitigation proposal for impacts to Category II habitat.
