Lake Herman Road Solar Project

The project includes the approval of a 5-megawatt alternating current (AC) solar facility located on approximately 35 acres of an 88.5-acre parcel located on the north side of Lake Herman Road. A zoning text amendment to Benicia Municipal Code was proposed establish a use classification, use regulations, and to conditionally permit solar utilities in the Open Space District upon approval of a use permit. 


The City Council approved the project on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 and approved the ordinance for solar utilities on July 21, 2020.
