The Project is expected to generate 500 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy. The overall Project is divided into five separate project areas.Project A consists of a utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) electrical generating and battery energy storage system (BESS) and associated infrastructure facilities, project B consists of a proposed 500-kilovolt (kV) generator-tie line (gen-tie) connecting to the Southern California Edison (SCE) Red Bluff Substation, project C consists of the medium voltage AC lines, project D consists of the roads in between the solar sites and any access roads, and project E consists of all the pull/tensions sites to support the gen-tie line. The project activities will result in a loss of approximately 143.67 acres of stream habitat
