Borrego Solar Systems Inc., a designer, installer and financier of grid-tied solar PV systems, has completed a 3.4 MW solar power installation at Edwards Air Force Base in Southern California.
Comprising three ground-mounted, single-axis tracking solar farms, the system is the largest military project completed by Borrego Solar to date. It was financed via the company's in-house power purchase agreement (PPA).
Per the PPA, Borrego Solar financed, designed and installed the system at no upfront cost to Edwards Air Force Base. Borrego Solar will sell energy back to Edwards Air Force Base at a fixed rate, offsetting an average of 6% of the energy consumption across the three facilities, according to Borrego.
