BELECTRIC Inc. has commissioned four solar power projects totaling 7.8 MW, in San Bernadino County, Calif. The developer has sold the operational projects to Sustainable Power Group LLC.
BELECTRIC used 6,480 Canadian Solar CS6X 300 W MaxPower polycrystalline modules on each project, with a total of 25,920 modules. The projects – Otoe Solar, Navajo Solar and Powatan Solar in Apple Valley and Industry Solar in Adelanto – are part of Southern California Edison's (SCE) California Renewable Energy Small Tariff (CREST) feed-in tariff program, which is aimed at developing smaller-scale utility power plants to provide distributed sources of clean energy.
‘BELECTRIC is excited to be one of the first companies to successfully complete an SCE CREST project,’ says Karl Markert, CEO of BELECTRIC. ‘We were approached in early 2013 with the four projects that needed to be completed before their CREST power purchase agreements expired at year end.’
