The project consists of installing a solar photovoltaic system for renewable energy production at the State Prison facility. The project site encompasses about 12.2 acres and will consist of 6,208 solar photovoltaic modules.

There are no plans for site grading for this project as the site was a former jojoba field, has been previously disturbed, and is level ground.
