Eurus energy is partnering with NRG Energy subisdiary NRG Solar to build California's largest solar photovoltaic power plant.

The project, comprising three solar farms in Avenal Park, Sun City and Sand Drag, will generate a total of 45MW of power to serve 36,000 homes.

The Avenal projects to come up in Kings County, California, were developed by Eurus and are owned jointly by Eurus and NRG.

Eurus and NRG have completed construction financing on all three projects and given full notice to proceed on Sun City (20MW) and Sand Drag (19MW) to the Ryan Company, which will construct the Avenal projects.

The projects are expected to become commercially operational in the middle of next year.

The California Public Utilities Commission has approved the 20-year Avenal power purchase agreements with Pacific Gas & Electric.
