Recurrent Energy has signed off on a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for the 63MWac / 88MWp Stanford Solar Generating Station #2.
Located on 161 hectares of land in Kings County, California, the Stanford Solar Generating Station #2 will power the equivalent of 15,750 homes with clean electricity.
Once completed, the project, together with Stanford University's existing 67MW solar PPA and its 5MW rooftop installation, will generate enough clean energy annually to equal the university's annual electricity consumption.
Shawn Qu, chairman and chief executive officer of Canadian Solar, parent company of Recurrent Energy,, said: "This power purchase agreement with Stanford University demonstrates Recurrent Energy's ability to work with a diversified customer base in California and across the U.S.
“We've long partnered with different types of load-serving entities, such as investor-owned and publicly-owned utilities, and we're a known leader for our partnerships with CCAs. Now, we are delighted to also demonstrate our ability to meet the needs of direct access customers.”

Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
