In 2015, Recurrent Energy recieved a tax equity investment commitment for the Mustang site from U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation (USBCDC).

Adam Altenhofen, vice president of USBCDC, added: “High-quality solar projects like Mustang are an important strategic investment for U.S. Bank, which provide jobs to local communities, while delivering clean, reliable energy to the state of California.”

Renewable energy generated by the Mustang installation will be sold off under long-term power purchase agreements with Sonoma Clean Power and MCE. The site is expected to produce enough electricity to power around 45,000 homes.

Construction of the 404-hectare project created 450 peak construction jobs. Blattner Energy offered its engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the project.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
