First Solar has proposed to construct a renewable energy project that would produce up to 40 megawatts of electric power using horizontal trackers solar photovoltaic modules on ~327 acres of agricultural land. The project site is located ~2 miles southeast of Cuyama and ~2 miles southwest of the Cuyama River. A new 3 mile 70kV generation tie-line would be constructed by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and would deliver the Project's generated power from the Project's onsite substation.
