Document Description
The VEGA SES Solar Project consists of three primary components: 1) solar generation equipment and associated facilities (herein referred to as "solar energy facility"); 2) battery storage system; and 3) 230 kilovolt (kV) generator intertie (herein referred to as "gentie") that will deliver the electrical energy produced by the project to the proposed Imperial Irrigation District (IID) 230 kilovolt (kV) Fern Substation. The solar energy facility, battery storage system, and gentie are collectively referred to as the "proposed project" or project." The VEGA SES Solar Energy Project involves the construction of a 100-megawatt photovoltaic solar energy facility with an integrated 100 MW battery storage system on approx. 574 acres of land. the project would include a ground mounted PV solar power generating system, supporting structures, electronic/electrical equipment, on-site substation, retention basins, access roads, and fencing. The energy produced by the project would be conducted through a proposed 230 kV generator intertie line and delivered to the IID through a short interconnection with the proposed IID 230 kV Fern Substation.
