Document Description
Lendlease Energy Development LLC (Applicant) proposes the Calcite Solar Project, which would result in construction and operation of a 100-megawatt (MW) alternating current (AC) photovoltaic (PV) solar energy facility on approx. 664 acres. The project would produce approx. 266,000 megawatts-hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually. The project would include approx. 100 MWAC maximum capacity, and energy storage (battery) system and a 220-kilovolt overhead generation tie line (gen-tie line) that would extend approx. 0.2 miles north of Southern California Edison's proposed Calcite Substation. An on-site substation, inverters, fencing, road, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system would also be constructed as part of the proposed improvements.
