Schoup Solar Project Bap Power Corporation DBA Cenergy Power ("Cenergy") is proposing to construct the Schoup Solar Project (Project), a solar facility which would occupy approximately 22.5 acres of privately-owned land in the County of San Miguel, New Mexico (see attached Site Location Figure). The design includes 13,200 solar modules attached to a single axis tracking system. The nameplate capacity of the facility will be 7.128 MWdc with an anticipated grid supply of 4.950 MWac. Thirty-Three (33) inverters within the project footprint will convert DC power to AC and the electricity will be transmitted to existing utility poles on George Shoup Relief Rte. The remaining components on-site include a gravel access road and a 6-foot tall chain link fence & 1 inch of 3 strands barbed wire, which will surround the solar facility.
