Cuyama Solar Facility

SEPPS worked with First Solar, Inc. to obtain approval of Santa Barbara County’s first utility-scale solar energy power plant. The project entitlements required and successfully obtained legislative amendments to enable utility-scale solar photovoltaic projects in Santa Barbara County.

This project required in-depth knowledge of complex general plan, zoning and state regulatory issues. Located on 327 acres in the Cuyama Valley, the solar power plant will generate 40 Megawatts of clean, renewable energy.
