EDF Renewables

PaleoWest is currently providing cultural and paleontological resource support to EDF Renewables for the Palen Solar Project (PSP), on land managed by the Bureau of Land Management in Riverside County, California. Before construction, PaleoWest prepared the Paleontological Resources Monitoring and Mitigation Plan to be implemented during ground disturbing activities for the duration of the project.

During the construction phase, we provided paleontological resource monitoring for preconstruction geotechnical and site fencing activities. Paleontological monitors were a late requirement for this effort, but we successfully provided paleontological field staff ahead of initiation of geotechnical studies and avoided project delays. Our team collected and documented 13 newly discovered vertebrate fossil localities yielding specimens that will be curated at the Western Science Center.

“This project was one of the most challenging archaeological regulatory projects I have worked on in my 20+ years of managing projects. We are sincerely appreciative that PaleoWest would accept the challenge that most other archaeology firms would not even consider – and then operate in such a smooth and entrepreneurial manner to reach success!”
