Document Description
Request for approval of a use permit to allow construction of an approx 18-acre solar field on the 21-acre property. The solar field will utilize approx 12,096 solar modules (panels) and 66 string inverters, which convert the sun's energy into usable, AC power. The solar panels will be mounted on steel racking systems which will be anchored to the ground using driven steel piers at an overall height of under 8-ft above grade. Single axis tracking technology will be used to allow the panels to move to efficiently track the sun throughout the day thereby maximizing the efficiency of solar collection. The solar panels will generate a total of 3 MW of AC power when fully implemented.
