Document Description
The project being proposed by Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative for the property located at 92754 Highway 70, Vinton, which is privately owned by Mary Duncan, is a solar electric generation facility. The property is zoned 1-2 (Light Industrial), S-1 (Suburban), F (Farm Animal Combining), and SP-ScR (Special Plan Scenic Road). Under Plumas County Code {PCC), a solar electric generation facility is considered a "public utility facility." A "public utility facility" is defined as the following by Plumas County Code Section 9-2.277 - Public utility facility: "Public utility facility" shall mean an improvement use necessary for the provision, distribution, or conveyance to the public of utilities or a facility for the maintenance of such facilities. Due to the site being zoned S-1, which permits residential uses, a "public utility facility" is a use permitted subject to a special use permit {PCC 9-2.1502(b)(1 )}. Additionally, due to a portion of the property being zoned 1-2, a site development review (site development permit) is required. The parcel in which the project is located is approximately 37.01 acres. The proposed project would encompass 26.8 acres of the 37.01 acre parcel. The proposed solar electric generation facility would produce 4.625 MWAC (megawatts - alternating current) and 5.694 MWDC (megawatts - direct current) of power. The expected yearly power output of the facility is 12,425 MWh (megawatt-hour).
