Document Description
CSOLAR IV West, LLC is planning to construct, operate, and maintain a 230kV transmission line. The electric generating facility would connect to the Imperial Valley Substation via 230 kV transmission line. The proposed Action consists of two primary components; 1) the construction and operation of the 250 Megawatt Imperial Solar Energy Center West solar energy facility; and 2) the construction and operation of the electrical transmission lines that would connect from the solar facility to the existing Imperial Valley substation to serve electricity consumers in California. The electricity generation process associated with the Proposed Action would utilize solar technology to convert sunlight directly into electricity. As part of the Project, the solar facility would interconnect to the utility grid at the 230 kV side of the Imperial Valley Substation via an approximately five-mile long transmission line. The development of the solar energy center is on 1,130 acres of vacant land previously utilized for agricultural purposes. Project would include a facility consisting of ground mounted photovoltaic solar power generating system, supporting structures, operations and maintenance building, substation, water treatment facility, plant control system, meteorological station, and roads and fencing.
