The Project includes the construction and operation of two fixed-panel array solar generation facilities and substration combined totaling approximately 550.5 acres in southern Tulare County. The Alpaugh North solar generation facility would produce 20 MW and the Alpaugh solar generation facility would produce 50 MW. Both solar generation facilities combined would include the construction of transformers, inverters and electrical panels on seventy 20x40 foot concrete pads. The Project would also include low-impact lighting and fencing installation for safety purposes. The Project also includes the installation of a wooden pole line that would begin at the substation on the Project site and end 1/2 mile to the west, at the existing Pacific Gas & Electric transmission line.
