Overview

Central San Solar Project

Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (Central San) has begun planning for a proposed 5.5 acre, 1.75-megawatt solar project on Central San-owned land at the north end of Blum Road in your neighborhood. Central San intends the design of this low-maintenance, renewable energy facility to minimize its presence on nearby residential areas.

If you have questions about this project or to be added to the project email list, send an email to the Central San project team at rleavitt@centrasan.org.  Project information and updates will be posted on this site.

Project Description

Figure 1 - Project Location

The 48-acre property, referred to as the Lagiss Property after the former owner, was purchased by Central San in 1990 as a buffer property to prevent incompatible land uses from developing adjacent to our treatment plant. For years, the property has been leased out for livestock grazing to control vegetation. While that use is expected to continue, portions of the site are being studied for a low-impact, solar energy project.
