Vacant/Open Space/Preservation with a geothermal overlay (S-2-G)/Recreation
The proposed project involves the construction and operation of a 20 Megawatt photovoltaic (PV) solar energy facility on approximately 100 acres of privately-owned land. The proposed project would be comprised of solar PV panels on single-axis horizontal trackers, on-site substation and inverters, transformers, and underground electrical cables. The project also includes approximately 2 miles of fiberoptic line from the proposed on-site substation to the existing Niland Substation to connect the proposed Wister Substation to the region's telecommunications system. A gen-tie line would connect the Wister substation to the Point of Interconnection at the existing Imperial Irrigation District's 92kV "K" line.
