On February 23, SunEdison, Inc. announced signing two 20-year power purchase agreements with Southern California Edison for 2.7 megawatts DC of solar. SunEdison intends to build the systems using a combination of parking canopies and rooftop space. Solar parking canopies provide shade for parked cars while generating cost-effective, clean solar energy.
SunEdison intends to complete the solar systems pending approval of the contracts by California’s Public Utility Commission.
Operation and maintenance of the solar systems will be performed by SunEdison Services, which provides 24/7 global asset management, monitoring and reporting services.
Sam Youneszadeh, SunEdison’s regional general manager of its Western U.S. solar business remarked:
“We know that air quality is a big concern for residents in the area, but so is getting reliable electricity to a growing, economically important region. SunEdison can help.
Solar is a great way for utilities to boost grid reliability without emitting greenhouse gases. Solar is cost effective, quick-to-build, and can easily scale. It’s great to see Southern California Edison looking after the people it serves.”
