Document Description
Solar Star California VIII, LLC (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the SunPower Corporation) proposes to construct, operate, and ultimately to decommission, a 25-megawatt alternating current (MW ac) photovoltaic (PV) electricity generating facility and associated infrastructure on a n approximately 157-acre site. The proposed project would generate and deliver solar-generated power to the Modesto Irrigation District (MID) subtransmission and distribution system. As part of the proposed project, MID is proposing to construct, own, and operate a switching station in a new switchyard to be located on the project site, as well as a new overhead 69-kilovolt (kV) subtransmission line and 12-kV distribution line that would interconnect the proposed solar facility to the existing MID electric system. The project would operate year-round, generating electricity during daylight hours.
