Adding to the company’s ever-expanding portfolio of large-scale installations, SunEdison has won the contract to provide a 14.5MW ground-mounted solar power installation at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (DMAFB) in Tucson, Arizona. The agreement will see SunEdison look after the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the ~130 acre site, which, upon completion, will provide as much as 35% of DMAFB’s energy needs.
SunEdison has also entered into a long-term ground lease agreement with DMAFB for the use of their land, and in return, will provide the DMAFB with electricity supply at a fixed rate.
“With our strong financing capabilities and our track record of timely large-scale deployments, SunEdison is able to provide smart solar solutions with no upfront capital costs and long-term predictable energy pricing,” stated Jaime A. Smith, Vice President of Sales for SunEdison. “SunEdison is proud to be awarded this contract and looks forward to working with DMAFB to the completion and activation of the solar power plant.”
