Idemitsu Renewables has achieved commercial operation for the Luciana solar project, a 73 MW installation in Tulare County, Calif.
“Considering the unprecedented supply chain challenges the industry faced this past year, we are proud to have successfully achieved commercial operation of the Luciana project through our partnership with East Bay Clean Energy (EBCE),” says Cary Vandenberg, CEO of Idemitsu Renewables. “By leveraging our financial strength and development expertise, we’re helping California meet its aggressive clean energy goals while also providing significant investment in Tulare County.”
The power generated by the Luciana project will be sold through a 15-year power purchase agreement with EBCE, which serves Alameda County and neighboring cities.
“The Luciana project brings more low-cost renewable energy to EBCE’s portfolio, and it’s another big step forward on EBCE’s path to 100 percent clean energy for all of our customers by 2030,” states Nick Chaset, EBCE’s CEO.
