California based project developer Recurrent Energy has signed a 15-year PPA with energy agency Peninsula Clean Energy for the Mustang Two Solar PV project, a 100 MW power plant it plans to construct in Kings County.
An agreement for construction of the project has been reached with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, at peak construction it is expected to employ around 400 workers. Recurrent Energy, which is a subsidiary of Canadian Solar and functions as the module makers U.S. project developer, expects the power plant to achieve commercial operation in 2019.
“With this project Peninsula Clean Energy has connected over 300 MW of renewable energy from new facilities being built to serve our customers in San Mateo County,” stated the agency’s CEO Jan Pepper. “Recurrent Energy is an excellent partner for communities like ours that want access to cost-effective, clean electricity.”
Since being acquired by Canadian Solar in 2015, having previously owned by Japanese electronics giant Sharp, Recurrent Energy has connected at least 800 MW of utility-scale PV in California.
“We are proud to help PCE meet their customers’ growing demand for clean energy,” said Shawn Qu, CEO at Canadian Solar. “This contract is an important part of growing our future U.S. project development pipeline.”
