Document Description
The Castor Solar Project proposes to construct and operate a 1.5 megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) power-generating facility with 5,800 PV solar panels, on 12 acres of 20.11 acre parcel in unincorporated Kern County, California near the community of Dustin Acres. The entire project site is within the jurisdictional boundaries of the Kern County General Plan. Implementation of the project would require approval of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) (CUP No. 5, Map 139-22). The proposed project would construct an offsite overhead or underground 12.74kV generation tie-line along Evans Ranch Road. This 0.25 mile-long line would connect the project to the PG&E approved point of interconnection utility pole on the Elk Hills 1104 12.74kV distribution line on Evans Ranch Road to a point ~0.25 mile north of the parcel on which the proposed solar facility would be constructed. The facility would consist of the following project components: (1) PV modules and support structures; (2) direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) inverters and transformers; (3) additional electrical equipment; (4) interconnection point and equipment; and (5) security improvements including fencing.
