Document Description
The proposed Project is the construction of a 5-MW solar PV energy-generating facility and battery storage system (BESS) facility on ±30 acres of 40 undeveloped acres. The proposed Project consists of solar modules mounted on single-axis trackers that follow the east-west movement of the sun. The solar cells are covered by anti-reflective glass. At peak production, the 5-MW solar energy facility would supply enough clean energy to power up to 1,250 residential homes per year. Major components of this commercial solar Project include: 1) PV modules mounted on stationary fixed tilt, ground-mounted racking or single-axis trackers, 2) inverters and transformers, 3) battery storage, 4) an electrical collection and distribution system, 5) internal access roads, 6) perimeter fencing, 7) data monitoring equipment, and 8) PG&E facility upgrades.
