Canadian Solar arm Recurrent Energy has announced that it has signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for the 63 MWac/88 MWp Stanford Solar Generating Station #2. The Stanford Solar Generating Station #2 located on over 400 acres in Kings County, California, will power the corresponding of 15,750 homes with clean electricity.
This photovoltaic (PV) project, together with Stanford University’s existing 67 MWp solar PPA and its 5 MWp rooftop installation, will produce enough clean renewable electricity each year to equal the university’s annual electricity consumption.
Commenting on the development, Canadian Solar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Shawn Qu said, “This power purchase agreement with Stanford University demonstrates Recurrent Energy’s ability to work with a diversified customer base in California and across the U.S. We’ve long partnered with different types of load-serving entities, such as investor-owned and publicly-owned utilities, and we’re a known leader for our partnerships with CCAs. Now, we are delighted to also demonstrate our ability to meet the needs of direct access customers.”
“We feel honored to help Stanford University achieve its goal to source 100 percent of its campus’ electricity from renewable energy,” Qu added.
As part of the company’s schedule project portfolio, the Stanford Solar Generating Station #2 is planned to enter operation in 2021.
Last month, Canadian Solar announced that another 150 MWac portion of the schedule portfolio has PPAs executed with Silicon Valley Clean Energy and Monterey Bay Community Power.
