CX-007393: Categorical Exclusion Determination

DeSoto Photovoltaic Variability Study
CX(s) Applied: B3.1, A9, B1.11
Date: 12/01/2011
Location(s): Florida
Offices(s): Golden Field Office

The Project goal would be for this site to be instrumented and used for research into photovoltaic (PV) variability and forecasting. Specifically, the goals of this project would be to: (1) Understand how PV plant output variability is impacted by change in the physical size and production capacity of a power plant; (2) Investigate the possibility of using satellite based information to estimate PV plant production especially larger plants comparable to the satellite footprint; and (3) Determine the minimum sensor configuration needed to model plant output and its variability.
