Recently, Recurrent Energy and Peninsula Clean Energy announced a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement for 100 megawatts of new solar power. Recurrent Energy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar, Inc, and PCE is the community choice energy agency serving San Mateo County.
Per the company, electricity would be delivered to PCE from Recurrent Energy’s Mustang Two solar photovoltaic project in Kings County, in central California. The project is expected to reach commercial operation in 2019. Following commercial operation, the project would begin delivering power to PCE pursuant to the terms of the PPA.
Jan Pepper, CEO of PCE, commented:
With this project, PCE has contracted for over 300 megawatts of clean, renewable energy from new facilities that are being built specifically to serve our customers in San Mateo County. Recurrent Energy is an excellent partner for communities like ours that want access to cost-effective, clean electricity from California.
According to the company, the Mustang Two solar project has a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Ironworkers, Carpenters, Laborers, and Operating Engineers for the construction of the solar project. It is expected to have a peak construction labor force of approximately 400 workers.
