Belridge Water Storage District Solar Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The proposed project is a fenced and gated 8.5 mw solar pv energy generation facility, consisting of approx 26,000 pv panels, and is intended to offset about 95% of the cost of the current electrical energy demand of BWSD's Pumping Plant A and Pumping Plant B facilities. The solar panels would occupy approx 47 acres of the 55-acre site and would be mounted on a single axis tracking system in order to maximize sunlight capture. The solar panels would have a max height of eight ft at max tilt. The facility would also interconnect Belridge Water Storage District's two existing meters, one at the Pumping Plant A facility and the second at the pumping plant B facility, via an underground conduit installation approx 9,600 ft in length. The conduit would be constructed within existing disturbed dirt road between the two facilities. Further, the project would include construction of a maintenance and fire access road, roughly 13,000 ft long and 20 ft wide, between and around the perimeter of the arrays. This road would be covered with crushed rock and constructed to be at matching grade with the surrounding ground surface. Project construction is expected to begin in January 2018 and be completed in June 2018, for a total duration of approx six months. After completion, the site would be remotely monitored.
