Document Description
The land owners of the project site are working with Pristine Sun, a solar energy development firm, acting as the authorized representative for the project. Pristine Sun proposes to develop the 2,990.4-acre project area with a solar farm facility. The solar panels [132 megawatts (MW) alternating current (AC)] will be at a maximum height of 1.5 meters (5 feet) above ground surface and affixed to a multi-panel articulating tracker mounting system. The applicant plans to construct a private transmission line with a direct Gen-tie to a proposed substation the applicant will construct. The Lassen County Planning and Building Services Department has received two use permit applications (one from each land owner) and a rezone application requesting the rezoning of APNs 133-070-002, 133-070-004 and 133-070-005 from 0-S-PSA (Open Space, Public Safety Airport combing district) to E-A-PSA (Exclusive Agricultural District Public Safety Airport Combing District). The Project design assumes buildable land, approval of the parcel rezone, and mitigation of any environmental encroachments.
