Sloughhouse Solar, LLC (applicant) is proposing to construct, operate, and decommission a new 50-megawatt (MW) solar energy facility on an approximately 381-acre project site in the Cosumnes community of unincorporated Sacramento County.

The project is located on agricultural grazing lands and is adjacent to an existing solar energy facility. The electrical power provided by the project would be supplied to the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) using existing, adjacent SMUD distribution facilities.
