Modesto Irrigation District (MID), K Road Power Holdings LLC and SunPower Corp. have completed K Road's 25 MW McHenry solar plant in Modesto, Calif.
The project was designed and constructed by SunPower, which is also providing operations and maintenance services. Under a 25-year power purchase agreement, MID is buying the electricity generated.
At the site, SunPower installed its Oasis product, a fully integrated, modular solar technology for utility-scale project. This is the first installed commercial solar power system to use high-efficiency panels manufactured with the third-generation SunPower Maxeon solar cell, which offers up to 24% efficiency, SunPower adds.
K Road acquired the plant from SunPower in May.
