If it were a solar cell bank, you wouldn't have it vertical like that, now would you?
Does it look like they trenched in some power cables? How big would you say it was?
Just from looks alone, it could be a multistatic detection array or some new variant of Raytheon's microwave fencing, although it's not quite bulky enough. Maybe. The newer GaAs stuff is smaller.

There may be remote sensors there but i also bet there is a underground vault with a propane generator/propane fuel cell and large fuel tank.
You are seeing a remote power station to charge a battery bank and likely power all the sensor platforms in the area.
Solar has a problem as a few days bad weather and there sensors go down.
Put in a generator/fuel cell system that starts when the batteries on the sensors get to low and you have 24/7 coverage
that accounts for the fire extinguisher.
There was a pit dug there as you can see the white Caliche hardpan around three sides of the pit and the backhoe was on the 4th side
This Caliche hardpan in the desert is about 2 to 3 feet down and would not be dug up in such large amounts for just pouring a slab.
They dug a large pit and put something underground like a precast concrete vault.
Once in a while one of the camo guys drives a propane truck out there and fills the tank
No remote sensors.

It is most definitely an electrical panel of some sort. The 2 pieces of conduit going into the ground.
It's feeding what looks to be a decent amount of power, those conduits would hold some thick teck cable, probably a 600a parallel feed.
