Stockton, Calif.-based Caltrans, which manages more than 45,000 miles of California's highway and freeway lanes, has unveiled a 251 kW photovoltaic (PV) system at Caltrans District 10 in Stockton.

The PV installation was built under a power purchase agreement with Beltsville, Md.-headquartered SunEdison, a solar services provider that will own and maintain the system. SunEdison will sell the solar energy to Caltrans at costs lower than Pacific Gas & Electric's rates, the companies say.

‘Caltrans is setting a standard that other transportation entities should follow by implementing cutting-edge renewable energy technology to power their facility,’ comments U.S. Representative Jerry McNerney, D-Calif.
