  1. Constellation and Mohave Electric Cooperative Complete 13.8-MW Solar Project

    By Editors of Power Engineering Exelon subsidiary Constellation and Mohave Electric Cooperative yesterday announced the completion of a 13.8-MW solar generation project in Fort Mohave, Ariz. The ground-mounted solar power system is located on 84 acres and fitted with a single-axis tracking system that enables the system to remain at an optimal angle to the sun throughout the day, maximizing energy output. The project is the second system completed by Constellation and Mohave Electric. It joins a 5-MW project that was completed in 2015 at a nearby site. Together, the systems are expected to generate approximately 38,000 MWh of electricity annually.  The Fort Mohave facility required no upfront capital from Mohave Electric. Constellation will own and operates the solar power system. Mohave Electric will purchase the electricity generated by the solar installation from Constellation on a 30-year power purchase agreement .  The terms of the agreement provide periodic options for Mohave Electric to purchase the facilities after six years. “This project offers us a cost effective way to incorporate more renewable power into our purchased power portfolio,” said Tyler Carlson, Mohave Electric’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our members want solar— they are for it as long as it’s cost effective for the Cooperative.” “Constellation is pleased to continue to collaborate with Mohave Electric to deliver renewable solar power to their members, while pro-actively managing their purchased power costs long-term,” said Brendon Quinlivan, executive director of distributed energy origination for Constellation. “Structuring solar projects as power purchase agreements enables municipal utilities and their consumers to adopt solar energy solutions that may require no upfront capital, and provide long-term fixed power costs that are less than projected market rates.”
