  1. Recurrent Energy Signs 100 MW Solar Power Purchase Agreement with MCE

    Immediately after announcing the impending commercial operation of the 200-MW Tranquility solar power project in California, Recurrent Energy announced a 15-year power purchase agreement for 100 MW from that project with MCE, California’s first operating community choice aggregation program. The agreement is now the largest of the three power purchase agreements with MCE. Recurrent, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canadian Solar Inc ., will construct Tranquility on 1,900 acres of retired agricultural land in Fresno County. Tranquility is expected to generate enough electricity to power 48,300 homes. Construction of Tranquility is expected to begin in 2017 and the project will begin providing power to MCE by late 2018. The project is majority-owned by Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company , who in August 2015 acquired a 51-percent controlling interest in the facility “We’re proud to be working with Recurrent Energy to grow California’s solar industry, helping to power economic strength, job creation and tackle climate change by transitioning our communities to clean energy,” said Dawn Weisz, CEO of MCE.
