The Castaic Lake Water Agency (CLWA) is seeking proposals for producing a feasibility study for of solar power generation at its Devil’s Den property located in Kings and Kern Counties, California stretching 8,500 acres and currently being used for agriculture and grazing. The possibility of solar generation at the site could benefit CLWA by rent payment for land use, revenue sharing for the selling of generated electricity, or the exchange of the generated electricity to offset electrical power use by CLWA.
On the other hand, CLWA could possibly look to become a partner with a solar power generation company instead. A survey of other solar projects in the area and a preliminary economic analysis reveals that a solar generation project at the Devil’s Den property is economically possible.
Proposals must be received by CLWA by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on April 24, 2009. Further information can be found at www.claw.org.
