SunEdison has been awarded 17.7 MW of distributed solar photovoltaic projects through the Regional Renewable Energy Procurement Project led by the County of Alameda, Calif. The company says it will be working with nine different public agencies in the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa and San Mateo to develop projects on more than 30 individual sites.
Susan S. Muranishi, administrator of Alameda County, comments, ‘Alameda County is proud be taking a leadership role in this groundbreaking regional acquisition of renewable energy systems and proud to be working with local government partners who are joining us in embracing alternative energy as a smart way to do business.''
To accommodate different site requirements, SunEdison says it will deploy rooftop, canopy and ground-mount system technologies. The company plans to begin construction on the sites by year-end, with completion planned by the end of 2015.
SunEdison and TerraForm Power, a SunEdison company, will own the projects once complete. The SunEdison Renewable Operation Center will perform operations and maintenance of the solar power plants.
