PLU: Grazing Land; Z: A-2-40 (General Agriculture); GPD: AG (Agriculture)
Document Description
Note: Refer to re-submitted MND on 12/7/2018. Request to construct a 40 megawatt (MW) solar facility on existing grazing lands west of I-5 in the southwestern portion of Stanislaus County. The proposed facilities would occupy approx 214+/- acres of three adjacent parcels totaling 1,049+/- acres. Project implementation includes interconnection to the existing Miller (electrical) Substation located on a separate parcel (APN: 028-007-049) and surrounded on three sides by the northernmost parcel of the project site. The project would operate for approx 35 years, after which the facilities would be decommissioned and removed, and the project site returned to existing conditions. A Williamson Act Cancellation is being requested for parcels 028-015-001 and 028-007-020 which contain approx 114,696 single-axis trackers, 38,232 fixed ground mount arrays, and appurtenant solar equipment. A Williamson Act Cancellation is not requested for parcel 028-007-054 since a power line from the array parcels, crossing Pete Miller Rd and connecting to the Miller Substation, is the only improvement proposed for this parcel. The power line is not expected to interfere with the agricultural use of the property, nor the Williamson Act Contract. A Williamson Act Non-Renewal has been filed for parcels 028-015-001 and 028-007-020.
