According to a report from the San Francisco Business Times, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission recently authorized a new 5 MW solar power project, to be installed at Sunset Reservoir and Pier 96 in San Francisco.
San Francisco-based Recurrent Energy won the contract to finance and build the project through power purchase agreements. Recurrent will own and operate the power plant and sell the power back to the city over a 25-year period.
The project, which is expected to generate power by mid 2009, will increase the city's solar power generation to 7 MW.
