SunEdison to deliver 20 megawatts electricity to Riverside Public Utilities

BELMONT, US: SunEdison, a leading worldwide solar energy services provider and a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials, announced a new 25 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to deliver 20 megawatts (MW) to Riverside Public Utilities (RPU), the municipal electric utility of the City of Riverside, California.   

SunEdison will construct the 20 MW North Lake I Solar plant on previously disturbed land owned by the Metropolitan Water District near the Diamond Valley Lake reservoir in western Riverside County. The project is expected to deliver renewable energy and reduce the need for costly transmission upgrades due to its proximity to load centres, including the RPU service territory.   

In addition to the contract from RPU, SunEdison also was awarded 3 PPAs totalling 48 MW by Southern California Edison (SCE) and one 18.5 MW PPA by San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) under the Renewable Auction Mechanism (RAM) programme. The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved the SCE contracts effective 31 October 2012 and is currently reviewing the SDG&E contract.

“SunEdison’s industry expertise and proven track-record give us great confidence that the project will be delivered on-time to help meet our renewable energy targets. Our partnership with SunEdison will enable us to deliver clean energy to our citizens at cost-effective rates while also enhancing reliability with peak-producing power. Riverside is an environmental leader among municipal utilities, and this contract builds upon our environmental stewardship,” said David H Wright, RPU General Manager, SunEdison.
