The Bellefield Solar and Energy Storage Farm projected located Kern County, CA aimed at establishing a photovoltaic solar facility and energy storage system the with potential to generate up to 500 megawatts (MW) of alternating current (AC) utility-scale solar power, complemented by an energy storage capacity of up to 500 megawatt-hours (MWh). Spanning approximately 3,100 acres of privately-owned land, the project is set to be a significant contributor to renewable energy generation.

The project consists of 230 kilovolt (kV) overhead and underground electrical transmission line(s) servicing on-site substations and terminating at the Southern California Edison (SCE) Substation.

The permanent facilities of the project include service roads, a power collection system, communication cables, overhead and underground transmission lines, electrical switchyards, project substations, energy storage system(s), and operations and maintenance (O&M) facilities.

Clark Bros Inc. provided services to complete the civil and site development scope of work for the project including, clearing of existing vegetation, earthwork grading, construction of main laydown and alternative laydown yards, substation and BESS clearing and grubbing, SWPPP and dust control, installation of (3) permanent property entrances, roadway surfacing and maintenance.
