X-Line Fossil Fuel to Solar Plus Storage Conversion

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project Applicant
X-Line Farms, LLC

Document Description
This project will install two ground-mounted solar photovoltaic arrays to provide power to two submersible irrigation pumps and to charge a 60-kilowatt hour battery. The pumps themselves will remain in place. The solar arrays will be located on two separate locations: one on the northeast side of the property and other on the east side. Each array area will occupy approximately 39 feet by 48 feet, but will not impact existing agricultural operations. The project will also include minor grading, trenching, and installation and compaction of conduit runs from the solar arrays to the existing on-site irrigation pumps. After installation, the area beneath the arrays will be covered with crushed rock for vegetation control. The project will be constructed to avoid impacts to harvesting and farming activities. The arrays will be located approximately 100 feet from of existing vines.
