Project Overview

The project would be located in the San Joaquin Valley of unincorporated Kern County, California. It will be northwest of the community of Mettler and generally northwest and northeast of Interstate 5 and Copus Road. The project site was selected for its strong solar resource, access to transmission lines, and gently sloping, undeveloped terrain and will complement the nearby land’s agricultural production.

Energy Output

Sandrini Solar Park would have an installed capacity of 300 megawatts (MW). Sandrini Solar Park's generation would be equivalent to the consumption of more than 100,000 Californian homes.

Sandrini Solar Park would yield significant economic benefits to the community in the form of payments to landowners, local spending, and annual community investment.

Sandrini would represent a capital investment of hundreds of millions of dollars and would disperse millions in property tax payments to local governments over the life of the project. The project would create approximately 650 full-time equivalent jobs during construction and 11 permanent jobs during the life of the project.

Sandrini Community


Sandrini Solar Park would save more than 381 million gallons of water each year and displaces carbon emissions from fossil fuel power plants, a major contributor to climate change. Solar energy also enhances air quality by helping to mitigate the health effects of harmful air pollutants produced from fossil fuel power plants.



Sandrini Solar Park would be compatible with other land uses and would provide a stable form of income to local landowners. Millions of dollars would be paid to the solar park’s landowners through the life of the project. These supportive landowners participate in long-term land agreements.

Solar Panels

Sandrini Solar Park would consist of state-of-the-art, bifacial tracking PV panels on a site of approximately 2,470 acres. Photovoltaic solar cells have no moving parts and convert sunlight directly into electricity via the photoelectric effect. This direct-current electricity is then collected, transformed into alternating-current, and finally enters the electrical grid through a substation after being converted to the proper voltage.
