Document Description
The Fifth Standard Solar Facility Project Complex (proposed project) would construct, operate, maintain, and decommission a 150-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) generation facility, a 20-MW solar PV generation facility, and an up to 100-MW energy storage facility. The proposed project includes PV electricity-generating facilities, a battery storage facility, and associated infrastructure. The proposed project would be located on approximately 1,600 acres in unincorporated Fresno County. A new generation-tie line would be constructed to connect the solar and storage components of the proposed project to Pacific Gas & Electric's adjacent Gates Substation (point of interconnect). The anticipated lifetime of the proposed project would be 35 years and would be decommissioned once operations of the facility cease. The final lease agreement is anticipated to occur by 2022 with a lease term of 35 years. The Conditional Use Permit (CUP) would tentatively have an end date of August 2057
