Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy have acquired the 20 MW Adobe solar facility from SunEdison.
The facility represents the partnership's sixth solar project and is expected to begin commercial operation in May. The partnership's first solar project in California – the 139 MW Campo Verde Solar Facility – entered service in October 2013.
The Adobe solar plant, located in Kern County, Calif., incorporates 80,000 SunEdison Silvantis photovoltaic modules. SunEdison built the facility and will provide operations and maintenance (O&M) and monitoring services.
This project marks the fourth collaboration between Southern Power, Turner Renewable Energy and SunEdison. Previous projects include the 20 MW Apex and 30 MW Spectrum projects in Nevada and the 2.5 MW Granville project in North Carolina.
Southern California Edison will buy the power generated by Adobe Solar under the terms of a 20-year power purchase agreement.
