Duke Energy Renewables president Rob Caldwell said: “North Rosamond is a great addition to our growing solar portfolio.

“California is a leader in renewable energy, and we’re pleased to support their efforts by continuing to provide the state with cost-efficient renewable energy to meet residents’ needs.”

The project received tax equity financing from US Bank’s tax credit division and the US Bancorp Community Development Corporation.

“We’re pleased to support California’s efforts by continuing to provide the state with cost-efficient renewable energy to meet residents’ needs.”

M&T Bank’s Commercial Equipment Finance Group and Guardian Life Insurance Company of America also provided financing to the project.

Located outside of Rosamond, California, the solar facility is equipped with more than 477,000 solar panels.

With the capacity to power nearly 71,000 homes in the region, the facility is expected to begin operations next month and will be the largest solar project in Duke Energy Renewables’ fleet.

Solar energy generated from the facility will be sold to Southern California Edison under a 15-year agreement.

First Solar Electric’s California-based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) subsidiary has been contracted for the facility’s design, procurement of photovoltaic (PV) modules, inverters, the balance of plant systems and construction works of the project.

Duke Energy is set to own or purchase 8,000MW wind, solar and biomass energy by 2020.
