Costamagna Farms No. 3 Solar Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Project Applicant
Margie Castamagna

Document Description
This project will install a 1097.3 kilowatt solar photovoltaic energy system for six existing on-site electric irrigation pumps (including deep-well, filter-station, and lift-pumps). The ground-mounted solar arrays with solar tracker technology will be located on approximately six acres of fallowed cropland at the northeast corner of W Cole Avenue and S Jameson Avenue, and will satisfy a quarter of the farm's total electricity needs. Installation of the arrays and perimeter fencing for safety will require some minor trenching and post-driving. A 30-foot-wide bed of gravel will surround the arrays to allow easy maintenance and operational access to the system without interfering with the farming operations.
