Document Description
Proposed Conditional Use Permit to construct and operate a 17-acre solar array facility and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). The facility will generate up to 3 megawatts (MW) of alternating current solar energy using approximately 7,182 solar modules and 24 string inverters to convert the sun’s energy. A single-axis tracking technology will allow the modules to track the sun efficiently throughout the day and maximize the efficiency of the solar collection. The facility will interconnect to PG&E’s pre-existing electrical distribution system located on-site and be sold to PG&E through a long-term Power Purchase Agreement.
