The Alameda County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing next week to consider the appeals of Friends of Livermore, Friends of Open Space and Vineyards, IP Aramis LLC (applicant), and Save North Livermore Valley, from the decision of the East County Board of Zoning Adjustments on Nov. 24, 2020, to certify the final environmental impact report and approve the Aramis Solar Energy Generation and Storage Project.
The project is a utility-scale solar photovoltaic energy generation facility with a maximum energy output capacity of 100 megawatts with associated battery storage using photovoltaic panels over a mostly contiguous 410-acre site, in the agricultural district, located partly at 1815 Manning Road and 4400 North Livermore Avenue, both south of Manning Road and west of North Livermore Avenue. It is partly on two other parcels without street addresses north of Manning Road at its intersection with North Livermore Avenue. In total, it represents a combined parcel area of approximately 700 acres.
Since Nov. 24, 2020, one parcel has been withdrawn from the project.
