SunEdison, a solar technology manufacturer and provider of solar energy services, interconnected a 20 MW AC (alternating current) solar plant in Kern County, Calif.
SunEdison was responsible for building the Adobe facility, and will provide asset management and 24/7 monitoring-and-maintenance services through its Renewable Operations Center. This project marks the fourth time that Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy have partnered with SunEdison since June 2012.
Previous projects include the 20 MW AC Apex project in Nevada, the 30 MW AC Spectrum project in Nevada, and the 2.5 MW AC Granville project in North Carolina.
Southern California Edison, a subsidiary of Edison International, will buy the power generated by the facility under the terms of a 20-year power purchase agreement. Over the course of 20 years, this system is designed to produce enough electricity to power nearly 92,000 homes and offset carbon emissions equivalent to removing almost 102,000 cars from the road for one year.
