Southern California Edison (SCE) says that a solar power plant it has constructed atop a 436,000 square-foot facility in Rialto, Calif., and owned by an affiliate of AMB Property Corp. is now online and providing generation to Inland Empire customers.
Power from the 16,300 solar panels installed on the Rialto warehouse is connected directly to the utility's nearest neighborhood circuit.
The utility notes that it has completed similar installations in Fontana and Chino during the past two years. The three solar plants have a combined peak generating capacity of 4 MW.
Ten additional solar plants will be constructed in the Ontario area and are expected online by the end of the year.
