Document Description
The proposed project is a solar PV power generation system to be located on approx 26 acres of land at the address of 3000 W Cecil Ave, Delano, CA 93215 which is part of the large state-owned Kern Valley State Prison facility. The ground-mounted solar array would convert sunlight to direct current electrical power which would then be converted to alternating current by string inverters before being delivered to the PG&E distribution system. The total system size is expected to be approx 2.95 mw (AC), subject to final design and site optimization. The solar system would be configured into six generally contiguous arrays. The solar system will utilize either fixed-tilt or single-axis tracking mounting technology to optimize efficiency and performance. The ground-mounted arrays would be supported on drive pipe piles, drive H-piles, or reinforced-concrete cast-in-drilled-hole piers, with the foundation design to be finalized following completion of on-site geotechnical surveys.
