Document Description
The California Department of General Services (DGS) Darrah Springs Solar Project (Proposed Project) is a solar Photovoltaic (PV) power generation system that would include 738 ground-mounted solar arrays that would occupy 59,500 square-feet. The Proposed Project will convert sunlight to Direct Current (DC) electrical power which would then be converted to Alternating Current (AC) by string inverters before being delivered to the PG&E distribution system. The total system is expected to be approximately 321 kilowatts. The Proposed Project would support energy reduction goals, the Global Warming Solutions Act, and Governor’s Green Building Order S-20-04.
