Recurrent Energy has signed agreements with Kaiser Permanente for the development of 15MW of solar power systems at several different locations across California. Recurrent will build, own, and operate 16 solar power systems installed across 15 Kaiser Permanente hospital and office rooftops, ground spaces and above existing ground-level parking spaces and garages.
“These 16 solar power systems reaffirm the demand for distributed-scale projects, which can be aggregated to generate a significant amount of power,” said Arno Harris, CEO of Recurrent Energy. “We have over 1GW of distributed-scale projects in development across North America and Europe, and this project reinforces the role that commercial and industrial rooftops can play in distributed-scale solar power deployment,” he continued.
“Kaiser Permanente sees renewable and clean energy as a key part of our environmental and sustainability strategy,” said John Kouletsis, director of strategy, planning and design at Kaiser Permanente.
Some of the projects are already underway; all sites will be completed by the summer of 2011.
