Document Description
41 MB 8ME, LLC is proposing to install a solar energy facility that would allow up to 90 MW of power generation. The proposed site is located on approximately 459 acres northwest of the intersection of Road 33 and Avenue 13, (no situs) in Madera. Approximately 175 acres of the subject parcel is not intended for project development, but will be left to its exiting use, including a shop building, almond orchard, and fallow ground. The facility proposed consists of free standing ground mounted photovoltaic panels as high as twenty feet from ground level. An operations and maintenance building is proposed onsite, including an office, restroom, storage, control room, and a septic tank and leach field. A parking lot will serve the building, with access from Road 33. The property would be surrounded with a chain link fence for protection.
