Sempra Renewables, a unit of Sempra Energy, has acquired a 281MW solar project from Canadian Solar subsidiary, Recurrent Energy.
The Great Valley Solar project, previously called Tranquillity 8, is currently under construction in Fresno Country, California. Sempra expects to fully complete the project in Q3 2018.
The project, which has four long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs), will be spread across 647 hectares. It is also located next to the 258MW Tranquillity Solar Facility, which was completed by Recurrent Energy in late 2016 and is majority-owned by a subsidiary of Southern Power.
"We are pleased to work with a market-leading partner like Sempra Renewables on this transaction," said Shawn Qu, chairman and chief executive, Canadian Solar. "Recurrent Energy's strong portfolio of US solar assets continues to create value for our customers and shareholders."
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.
