Document Description
The proposed project consists of the construction and operation of five photovoltaic (PV) solar electric generating fields/ facilities on two sites for a total of 7.5 megawatts. Each field consists of rows of photovoltaic panels which are fixed in position. These photovoltaic panels convert sunlight directly into electrical energy without the use of heat transfer fluid or cooling water. Wrought-iron fencing would surround each project site and a 10-foot landscaped area would be provided between the fence and property line to screen the development from surrounding uses. A new driveway from Kettering Street to the Desert Winds Continuation School parking lot will be provided along the school's western boundary.
