Daggett Solar is a 482 MW of solar power paired with 394 MW of storage. With this, Daggett Solar would be among the largest solar and battery storage projects built in California.
Daggett Solar will be largely located on previously-disturbed agricultural land.
This ensures sustainable, low-impact land use. Unlike other forms of agriculture, solar does not disturb the soil or land on an ongoing basis, which maintains it for future use. Because solar does not require water to generate power, it contributes to water preservation, further protecting the surrounding environment.
Daggett Solar will be built in three phases:
The project will be built in three phases. The first two phases consist of solar and storage and the last phase consists of just storage. The first phase commenced construction in the fall of 2021 and will be complete in summer of 2023. The second phase commenced construction in Q2 of 2022 will be complete in winter of 2023. The third phase will be constructed at a future time.
In terms of the local workforce, Daggett Solar will create more than 500 union labor jobs in partnership with I.B.E.W. Labor Union 477. The site will also sustain at least a dozen permanent onsite roles for project operation, maintenance, and management.
To ensure the safety of the Daggett Solar team and the community at large, thorough safety measures will be implemented at each step of the project. Since solar has just a few moving parts – and no emissions or engines – it will be a quiet, clean neighbor. Additionally, we will adhere to stringent conditions for dust mitigation during construction and opportunities. From start to finish, the project will be staffed and secured by operational and safety professionals.
