It is hoped that these comments will make the project better integrated into the community. This meeting is informational only and will not require a vote from the council members because of the California Solar Rights Act. The only two items on the agenda will be the Horizon Solar Power project at Sky Valley Resort and public comment time. Troy Matthews Project Manager for Horizon Solar will present the solar project. There will be a public comment time at the end of the presentation. The agenda for this meeting will be distributed and posted on July 7, 2014.


Horizon Solar Power has been working on the Sky Valley Resort project with Ken Baez in Planning and Mike Gialdini since early 2014. The project size when completed is roughly 8.5 acres located at the south west side of the Sky Valley Resort and will produce 2.175 megawatts which will solely be used for the Sky Valley Resort. Horizon Solar Power has built a similar project at Caliente Springs. It is strongly recommended that the council members and residents visit this site to get a better understanding of this solar project to help formulate concerns or questions.
