Solargen Energy, Inc. proposes to construct the Panoche Valley Solar Farm project, a 420 Megawatt (MW) solar energy generation facility consisting of 1,822,800 pole-mounted, silicon based solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and associated electrical equipment, an electrical substation, and an operations and maintenance building. The proposed project would deliver electricity to the regional transmission system by interconnecting to the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) Moss-Panoche/Coburn-Panoche 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line on site. The proposed project would be considered a renewable energy generation facility, and according to the applicant would support California in meeting the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) mandate.
