Document Description
The project is a 1.29 MW PV energy facility on a 12 acre project site in the Cummings Valley area of unincorporated greater Tehachapi area of central Kern County. The site is located north of Cummings Valley Rd and Roost Ave, east of Balley Rd, and west of Bear Valley Road. The project would consist of approximately 4,592 PV panels mounted on a single axis tracking system in order to max sunlight capture. The panels and mounting would cover approximately seven acres of the project site. The project would connect via an above ground power line to an existing Southern California Edison 23 kV distribution line. The project is intended to offset approximately 50 percent of the cost of the current electrical energy demand of BVCSD's various utility and public service facilities.
