Glare from solar panels can potentially impact sensitive receptors, such as aircraft pilots, air traffic controllers, motorists, residents, and recreationists. So, glint/glare analysis is increasingly becoming a required component of solar development applications at the local and federal level. Additionally, depending on complexity, project components can be difficult for the public and decision makers to
Energy storage facilities are often sited near electrical distribution substations in urban and suburban environments to capitalize on the energy demands in these areas. In such locations, noise-sensitive uses may exist nearby, such as residential neighborhoods, hospitals, churches, and schools. Introduction of a noise generation source, such as an energy storage facility, must take existing
In order to assist in the achievement of state renewable energy targets and increase electricity reliability for San Diego County, BayWa Renewable Energy proposed to construct and operate a 20-megawatt solar farm on unincorporated private land in southern San Diego County.
To reduce costs and increase reliability for its ratepayers, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power needed to construct a new 500-kilovolt, 10- to 14-mile transmission line to deliver power from the Apex generating station to the Crystal switching station in Clark County, Nevada.
Southern California Edison’s (SCE) Devers–Palo Verde No. 2 (DPV2) Electrical Transmission Line covers more than 150 miles of alignment running from western Riverside County to the Colorado River in Arizona. The project connects several large-scale solar and conventional generation projects in eastern Riverside County to the power grid.
