Project Applicant
20SD 8ME LLC, 5455 Wilshire Blvd, Ste 110, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Present Land Use
The majority of the Project site is zoned as AE-40 (Exclusive Agriculture – 40 acre minimum), with exception of the northernmost parcels which are zoned AE-10 (Exclusive Agriculture – 10 acre minimum). The Project site is designated as Extensive Agriculture, Valley Agricultural, and Valley Agriculture Extension by the Tulare County General Plan.

Document Description
The Project includes the construction and operation of an up to 700 megawatt alternative current (MW AC) solar photovoltaic (PV) facility and an up to 700 MW AC energy storage system (ESS) on approximately 3,614 gross acres of land (on 40 discontiguous parcels) in unincorporated south-central Tulare County, California. The proposed Project would include a ground mounted PV solar power generating system, supporting structures, inverter modules, pad mounted transformers, ESS, access roads and fencing, and on-site substation. An operations and maintenance building may be constructed on the site. The proposed Project would involve the construction of both transmission and collector lines. Power generated by the proposed Project would be transmitted to the Southern California Edison (SCE) Vestal Substation via an up to 230 kilovolt (kV) overhead and/or underground gen-tie line. The proposed transmission and/or collector lines would extend along existing roadway rights-of-way from various portions of the Project site (where substations are located) ultimately connecting to the Southern California Edison Vestal Substation. The transmission and/or collector lines would be located along portions of Road 232, Avenue 56, Avenue 64, Road 224, Road 240, Avenue 32, Richgrove Drive, and SR 65, or could possibly utilize additional nearby routings. The total length of the transmission and/or collector lines would be approximately 13 miles in length.
