San Diego Gas & Electric Subregional Plan

This linear NCCP, extending from southern Orange County south to the Mexican border, was the first plan approved in San Diego County. The project covers 110 plant and animal species and emphasizes avoidance of impacts. Mitigation required by the plan includes revegetation and use of up to 240 acres of credits set aside in land parcels purchased by SDG&E as mitigation banks. SDG&E's properties and easements provide habitat connectivity in areas where little natural habitat remains.
