Recurrent Energy begins commercial operation of Mustang solarpower project in California

Canadian Solar's completely owned subsidiary Recurrent Energy has commenced commercial operation of the 100 MWac/134 MWp Mustang solarpower project in Kings County, California.

Canadian Solar's completely owned subsidiary Recurrent Energy has commenced commercial operation of the 100 MWac/134 MWp Mustang solarpower project in Kings County, California.

The project's generation will be sold under long-term power purchase agreements to Sonoma Clean Power and MCE. This will provide electricity to around 45,000 homes.

Canadian Solar's chairman and CEO Dr. Shawn Qu said: "The commercial operation of the Mustang solar project continues a historic year, which will see Recurrent Energy complete more than 1 GW of US solar photovoltaic (PV) projects."

"The project's generation will be sold under long-term power purchase agreements to Sonoma Clean Power and MCE."

Last year, Recurrent Energy secured a tax equity investment commitment for the solar project from US Bancorp Community Development Corporation (USBCDC).

USBCDC's vice-president Adam Altenhofen said: "High-quality solar projects like Mustang are an important strategic investment for US Bank, which provide jobs to local communities while delivering clean, reliable energy to the state of California."  

Blattner Energy provided engineering, procurement, and construction services for the project.
