Sonoma Clean Power (SCP), Sonoma County’s new electricity supplier, signed an agreement today with leading North American solar project developer Recurrent Energy, to construct 30 megawatts (MW) of solar power in California, and to supply the energy to SCP customers.
“This 20-year deal secures pricing that helps Sonoma Clean Power maintain its low costs and deliver further reductions in greenhouse gas emissions,” offered Supervisor Susan Gorin, Chair of the SCP Board of Directors.
Power from the new solar facility, located in the Central Valley, will be sufficient to supply 9,000 homes starting in late 2016 when construction is completed. The project will be constructed under a project labor agreement.
