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 7,450 acre (11.64 sq. miles) site boundary. Other proposed components include a battery energy storage system (lithium-ion batteries); power collection system; up to two substations; operation and maintenance building; Generator Step Up (GSU) transformer; 1.5 mile overhead 500 kV transmission line; point of interconnection (POI); perimeter fencing, access roads and staging areas.

Proposed. The Department received the preliminary Application for Site Certificate (pASC) on August 31, 2022 and has commenced pASC review, and coordination with state and local government agencies​. A public notice will be issued once the Department determines that the pASC is complete. On November 2, 2022 the Department released its Second Amended Project Order based on the Council’s new Wildfire Prevention and Risk Mitigation standard and Division 21 application requirements.
