EDF Renewable Energy dedicated the 143 MWp (110MWac) Catalina Solar project located in Kern County, California. The project is EDF Renewable Energy’s largest utility-scale solar photovoltaic project to date.
Located on 900 acres of privately owned land southwest of the Tehachapi and Piute mountains, the thin film photovoltaic project is comprised of 82 MWp Solar Frontier and 61 MWp First Solar PV modules. EDF Renewable Services is providing the long-term operations and maintenance services for the project.
The project’s clean energy is provided to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) under a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement. EDF Renewable Energy has 343 MW of renewable energy generation through three projects to meet its contract obligations to SDG&E, all of which are located in Kern County.
