- James Irrigation District Solar Project #2
- The proposed project involves the installation of a one-megawatt (MW) solar array with single-axis tracking system, including 1.1 MW of direct current photovoltaic modules, steel support structures, a one-MW alternating current electrical inverter, cabling, and other system components. The project also includes a main service board and a step-up transformer as well as metering facilities, conductors, and safety equipment for interconnection to Pacific Gas and Electric’s (PG&E) distribution system via a new primary meter installed within the project site. The electricity generated by the proposed project would offset James Irrigation District’s aggregated electricity usage for the canal and well pumps across James Irrigation District-owned parcels. The solar power generated on the project site would be used to generate bill credits for James Irrigation District’s meters in the Renewable Energy Self-Generation Bill Credit Transfer Program (RES-BCT) arrangement to offset their PG&E energy generation charges. The project’s interconnection with PG&E would require minor off-site construction to connect the proposed solar array to an existing PG&E generation tie line located immediately south of the project site.
