Zoning: A (Exclusive Agriculture)
General Plan Designation: 8.1 (8.1 = Intensive Agriculture (Min. 20 Acre Parcel Size)), 8.1/2.3(Shallow Ground Water), 8.1/2.5(Flood Hazard)
The Jasmine Solar Project, as proposed by SF Jasmine, LLC would construct and operate a photovoltaic solar facility and associated infrastructure necessary to generate up to 70 megawatts(MW) of renewable energy and a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) capable of storing approximately 17 MW to provide approximately 68 megawatt hours (MWh) of energy, on approximately 493 acres of privately-owned land. The project site consists of 1 site located on 1 privately owned parcel. The project study area consists of an approximate total of 527 acres and includes the project solar facility and transmission line areas. The project would be supported by a 230-kilovolt (kV) gen-tie overhead and/or underground electrical transmission line(s) originating from one or more on-site substations and terminating at a nearby Substation. The project’s permanent facilities would include, but are not limited to, service roads, a power collection system, inverter stations, transformer systems, transmission lines, electrical switchyards, project substations, energy (battery) storage system, and operations and maintenance facilities.
