Soleil Power One LLC (the “Company”) is a utility-scale solar power plant and battery energy system storage (BESS) developer with a project portfolio of 2 Photovoltaic (PV) solar farms and 1 Battery Storage facility on over 1,355 acres in Kern County (90 miles north of Los Angeles), California.

The Company has done the preliminary engineering, filed for the grid interconnectivity, and is raising a round of capital to develop the project to a “shovel-ready” stage, at which point it will seek a sale of the project to a larger developer or an institutional fund.

Control 1,355 acres with aggregate of 650 MW of PV power capacity & 290 MW of battery storage. (Additional 1,000 acres of reserve under negotiation.)

Three renewable energy initiatives with potential to produce 1.2 - 1.5 GWh annually.

Filed for interconnectivity with LADWP (Los Angeles Department of Water & Power)

Filed for interconnectivity with CAISO (California Independent System Operator) a 3 to 5-year process in California.

Key Consultants: UGE, GridBright, 1099 Energy Consultants.

California is by far the fastest adopter of renewable solar energy in the United States with over 21,074 MW of installed solar capacity. Yet this current rate of development still isn’t enough – the state has a long way to go to achieve its goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045.

Part of what’s standing in the way is California’s lengthy authorization process, which involves not only finding and securing enough land to build on, but obtaining permits from the proper agencies and acquiring a Power Purchase Agreement(PPA) with energy providers or large-scale end-user(s). This process can take anywhere from 5 to 8 years.

To help California achieve 100% renewable energy by 2045, bringing clean energy to millions of people, Soleil Power One LLC is speeding up the typical process by pursuing development stages in parallel rather than in a traditional linear fashion.

Typically, solar developers proceed with the various stages of a development project linearly -- complete interconnectivity application through approval (3-5 years), then seek Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), then apply for environmental and other construction permitting.

Soleil instead is proceeding with these steps on parallel tracks, projecting to reduce the process to 3-5 years total. Soleil has already completed some of the most difficult steps – including securing control of appropriate land and securing a place in the queues for interconnectivity approvals.

  • Soleil has filed, verified and validated interconnectivity application for an 821-acre collection of parcels (contemplating 440MW PV Solar capacity and 290MW battery storage) with Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP)
  • Soleil also has a second filed, verified and validated interconnectivity application for an 484-acre collection of parcels (contemplating 440MW PV Solar capacity and 290MW battery storage) with California Independent System Operator (CAISO)

Once an applicant has a “queue” position with LADWP and CAISO, the applicable agency must grant interconnectivity once it deems the application to be in order – given all system upgrades have been determined and the applicant accepts all its related costs.

Based on Soleil’s queue position with LADWP for example, the current estimated time to completion is approximately 3 years from the time the application has been validated and given a position in the queue.

Soleil currently has plans for three solar plant projects in
Kern County, California.
