SunPower Reaches Settlement On CVSR Project Lawsuit


SunPower Corp. says it has reached an agreement with North County Watch and Carrizo Commons to settle and dismiss a lawsuit against the 250 MW California Valley Solar Ranch (CVSR) project, which is currently under construction in San Luis Obispo County, Calif. The project was acquired by NRG Energy Inc. last month.

Under the settlement agreement, SunPower has agreed that the use of the site for the CVSR project will not extend further than 50 years and that the decommissioning and restoration of habitat at the site will occur by that time.

In addition, SunPower says, the agreement provides for enhanced communication and collaboration regarding mitigation and monitoring activities during the construction of the project, funding of research on endangered species, and support for the development of a long-term vision for the Carrizo Plain.
