Document Description
The proposed project will construct and operate a solar photovoltaic electric generation facility on approximately 2067 acres of agricultural land in Western Imperial County, near the Imperial Valley Substation. The project may be built with a total generation capability of up to 170 megawatts (MW). The project consists of two primary components: (1) a generation facility and associated facilities on approximately 2067 acres and (2) an approximately five-mile long, 230 kilovolt (kV) aboveground, electric line (Gen-tie Line) that will connect the generation facility with the Imperial Valley Substation. The project will use proven solar PV technology and electronic DC-to-AC power conditioning equipment (inverters) to produce three-phase, 60 Hz, utility-grade electric power directly from the sunlight. The proposed Gen-tie Line will be a single circuit, 230kV aboveground electric line. The preferred Gen-tie Line will cross approximately 2.5 miles of private property and up to 2.5 miles of federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
