Sandrini Sol 1 Solar Park
RCEA completed a 15-year power purchase agreement on May 5, 2020 with EDP Renewables SA (EDPR) for 100 MW from the Sandrini Sol 1 Solar Park in Kern County, California. RCEA will purchase the full output the project which is expected to be operational in 2022.
Under the power purchase agreement, RCEA will receive approximately 300,000 MWh of renewable electricity per year. This will initially meet approximately 45% of RCEA’s current load.
EDPR’s project was selected for a power purchase agreement based on their response to RCEA’s February 2019 request for proposals for long-term renewable energy contracts. This facility is an eligible producer under California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard.
