The proposed project is an approx. 130-MW alternating current (AC) photovoltaic (PV) solar generating farm. The proposed project site is located in unincorporated Kings County, in the southern portion of the San Joaquin Valley within Sections 25 and 30, Township 24 S, Range 18 E, and Sections 30 and 31, Township 24 South, Range 19 East, Mount Diablo Base & Meridian CA (Figure 2). This region is characterized by a history of farming, ranching, and oil exploration. The proposed Project site parcels are under ownership of the CLWA and used for limited agriculture and grazing. The entire project area is classified by the CA Dept. of Conservation's Important Farmland Map as "Grazing Land." No portion of the project site is under a 20-year Farmland Security Zone Contract, also referred to as Williamson Act contract. Kings County provided an updated Agricultural Priority Designations map classifying the proposed Project site as "Medium Priority" and "Low Medium Priority."
