Document Description
As proposed, PG&E will construct a facility consisting of four berths to house up to 30 WEC devices and install five submarine cables to transmit the wave-generated power to a land-based conditioning and power substation. The submarine cables from the offshore pilot facility would be installed from the surf zone using horizontal directional drilling (HDD) to a landing location onshore. The project is designed to be of small-capacity, with the WECs producing an average electrical output of 5 megawatts (MW), and of short-duration.
