SunEdison completes 20 MW solar power project in California

SunEdison interconnects the 20-megawatt AC Adobe Solar Facility in Kern County, California

SunEdison (NYSE: SUNE) has successfully completed and interconnected the 20-megawatt AC Adobe Solar Facility in Kern County, California. The Adobe Solar Facility is owned by Southern Company (NYSE: SO) subsidiary Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy.

SunEdison will manage the new solar plant, which is comprised of 80,000 SunEdison Silvantis™ solar photovoltaic modules, providing 24-hour monitoring and maintenance. The facility is projected to provide electricity to almost 92,000 homes over the next 20 years and offset carbon emissions equivalent to removing almost 102,000 cars from the road for one year.

"We are proud to complete our fourth project with Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy; longstanding partnerships like this one are critical to SunEdison's continued growth," said Bob Powell, President, North America for SunEdison.  "Southern Company and Turner Renewable Energy are demonstrating their commitment to extending the use of renewable energy in the United States and we are honored that they have repeatedly chosen to work with us."

Southern California Edison will buy the power generated by the Adobe facility under the terms of a 20-year power purchase agreement.
