Project overview


50 MW solar + 25 MW battery energy storage


Enough solar energy to power over 15,000 California homes and enough storage capacity to power 18,750 California homes for four hours



Expected project timeline

  • Development – Siting – Permitting          2020-2022
  • Construction                                               August 2023
  • Operations                                                   Q3 2024


Economic and environmental benefits

We believe in being a good neighbor, ensuring responsible and sustainable clean energy development that benefits both the environment and local communities without burdening existing infrastructure.


100,000 tons

Carbon emissions offset by the project each year, improving air quality


~$30 million

Expected to be injected into the local economy over the life of the project  


200 jobs

Expected to be created during peak construction, including union labor

Clean energy benefits local communities

  • Long-term tax revenue to counties, towns and school districts
  • Job creation during construction and operation
  • Local economic stimulus during construction
  • Affordable, reliable and locally produced clean energy
  • Improved air quality and reduced CO2 emissions
  • Non-permanent development and low-impact construction that ensures land can be sensitively restored to pre-project conditions at the end of the project’s life

Best practices in responsible and sustainable development

At AES, safety is our highest priority, and we’ve focused on improving lives for more than 40 years. As a leading innovator in energy solutions, sustainability is core to both our strategy and our culture. We are committed to responsible land use and incorporating sustainable best practices into the entire project lifecycle, contributing to building a domestic circular renewables economy and reducing foreign dependence.
