Document Description
The JVR Energy Park Project involves the operation and construction of a 90 megawatt (MW) solar energy facility and a battery energy storage system of up to 90 MW. The Project components include photovoltaic modules fitted on single axis trackers, a battery energy storage system, inverter/transformer platforms, an underground electrical collection system, a collector substation, a switchyard, an overhead gen-tie line, security fencing, and internal access. The development footprint of the proposed facilities has been reduced to approximately 604 acres. Eventual decommissioning would occur at the end of the Project’s useful life, which is conservatively assumed to be 35 years. All Project components would be decommissioned except the Switchyard Facilities, which would be transferred to San Diego Gas & Electric after construction. The Project requires a Major Use Permit (MUP).The 1,356-acre Project site is located in Jacumba Hot Springs within unincorporated southeastern San Diego County, within the Mountain Empire Subregion. Primary access would be provided from Interstate 8 with local access from Carrizo Gorge Road and Old Highway 80.
