Document Description
The Scarlet Solar Energy Project (Project) is proposed by RE Scarlet LLC (Applicant), a wholly owned subsidiary of EDP Renewables North America LLC (EDPR NA). The Applicant has applied to the Fresno County Department of Public Works and Planning (the County) for an Unclassified Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission a 400-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generating facility and 400 MW energy storage system and associated infrastructure to be known as the Scarlet Solar Energy Project. It would provide solar power to utility customers by interconnecting to the regional electricity grid at Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) Tranquility Switching Station. The Project consists of two major components: the solar facility and the PG&E improvements. The solar facility would include solar PV modules, support structures, electrical inverters, intermediate voltage transformers, two electrical substations, and a switchyard, and a generation intertie (gen-tie) transmission line. Each substation area would include an electrical control building. Other necessary infrastructure would include a permanent operation and maintenance building, a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, up to 400 MW of on-site battery storage, meteorological data system, access roads, and security fencing. Improvements to PG&E electrical infrastructure would include expansion of PG&E’s Tranquility Switching Station and approximately 1,900 feet of 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line to connect the solar facility’s 230 kV gen-tie line to the Tranquility Switching Station.
