Document Description
The Applicant (Tulare CSG 2 LLC) proposes to construct and operate the Tulare CSG 2 Solar Project (Project); a single-axis tracker ground mounted photovoltaic (PV) community solar and battery storage facility, approximately 6.6MWdc/5MWac in capacity. The Project is proposed to be located on a privately-owned parcel in Tulare County, California. Tulare CSG 2 LLC is requesting Special Use Permit approval from Tulare County in order to proceed with construction of the Project. The purpose of the proposed Project is to construct and operate a PV solar array with attached battery storage, which will generate and store clean and renewable solar energy, with electricity offtake sold to residential customers within Tulare County and the larger Southern California Edison (“SCE”) Utility Territory. The Project is proposed under the California Assembly Bill 2316 (AB2316), adopted by the California legislature in 2022. AB 2316 (Ward) Community Renewable Energy Program (CREP) instructs the California Public Utilities Commission to establish a new community solar program by March 2024 which will bolster the reliability of the electrical grid while benefitting those who cannot put solar on their roofs. The Project would benefit Tulare County by providing clean and renewable solar energy generation.
