Oregon - Deschutes - 9.9 MW AC

The Saturn Power Corp Tumble weed project is a 9.9 megawatt photovoltaic project. This project is located between Bend and Redmond Or. along Hwy 97.  The project site is a 95 acre farm/ranch property with a 60 acre water right. The current solar design covers approximately 73 acres. The property historically was a horse ranch, however it is marginal at best for a farming operation. A mixed use management plan is being considered at this time that would include grazing sheep under the solar array. Currently the University of Oregon have sheep grazing under solar arrays, we have contacted them for information regarding their program and are looking into the feasibility of grazing on this project.
