Renewable energy development company SunEdison completed and interconnected the South Milford solar power facility in Milford, Utah. The 3.8 MW DC facility is producing solar power plant in Utah. TerraForm Power acquired the solar power plant from its Call Right Projects List.

PacifiCorp, an electric utility that serves 1.8 million customers in six western states, will purchase the electricity according to its obligation under the federal Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act. The purchase agreements and the price of the electricity were approved by the Utah Public Service Commission to ensure a fair price for PacifiCorp customers.

The South Milford plant is expected to generate enough solar power for more than 500 homes, and should eliminate the emission of more than 12 million pounds of carbon dioxide per year, the equivalent of taking more than 1,200 cars off the road. PacifiCorp will purchase the electricity via a SunEdison 20-year power purchase agreement, which enables customers to lock-in low priced electricity at long term predictable prices.

Operation and maintenance of the solar power plant will be performed by SunEdison Services, which provides global 24/7 asset management, monitoring and reporting services.
