The Wagon Trail Solar Project is a proposed solar photovoltaic energy generation facility with a generating capacity of approximately 500 megawatts. The facility would be located within an approximately 7,339 acre (11.47 sq. miles) site boundary. The original proposal included an approximate 5,957 acres (9.3 sq. miles) site boundary. Other proposed components include distributed energy storage (lithium-ion batteries); power collection system; up to four collector substations; operation and maintenance building; up to 3 meteorological towers; site access, service roads, perimeter fencing and gates; 8-mile 230 kilovolt (kV) transmission line; and temporary construction areas.
