US-based developer Leeward Renewable Vitality has begun business operation of the Rabbitbrush photo voltaic plant in Kern County, California. The 100 MW challenge is co-located with 20 MW/50 MWh of power storage capability, with 415,000 thin-film PV modules and lithium-ion batteries.
It should promote electrical energy to Central Coast Group Vitality and Silicon Valley Clear Vitality – two non-profit, community-owned electrical energy suppliers – below 15-year energy buy agreements.
Leeward closed building financing and tax fairness commitments in June 2022 and ended the tax fairness funding this October. The funding consists of $58.5 million in inexperienced mortgage building financing and a further $62.5 million in tax fairness commitments.
Leeward initially acquired the Rabbitbrush challenge from First Photo voltaic, as a part of a $261 million deal during which the module maker offered Leeward its 10 GW utility-scale photo voltaic challenge platform.
“Accountable renewable power improvement and wildlife conservation go hand in hand, and LRE’s contribution to the vitally necessary Swainson’s Hawk Conservation Fund will assist hawks in California’s Antelope Valley survive and thrive,” mentioned Garry George, director of the Nationwide Audubon Society’s Clear.
