SunEdison Inc. (NYSE: SUNE) has received a contract for 17.7-MW of distributed solar photovoltaic (PV) power projects through the Regional Renewable Energy Procurement Project (R-REP) led by the County of Alameda. SunEdison will work with 9 public agencies in the Counties of Alameda, Contra Costa and San Mateo to develop projects on more than 30 individual sites.
Under terms of the contract, SunEdison will deploy rooftop, canopy, and ground mount system technologies. Upon completion, the projects will produce more than 27,700,000-kWh of solar power annually and will reduce more than 13,500 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
“Alameda County is proud be taking a leadership role in this groundbreaking regional acquisition of renewable energy systems and proud to be working with local government partners who are joining us in embracing alternative energy as a smart way to do business,” said Susan S. Muranishi, Alameda County Administrator.
Construction is expected to begin by the end of 2014 and projected for completion in 2015.
SunEdison and its subsidy TerraForm Power, will own the projects once completed. Operation and maintenance services will be provided by the SunEdison Renewable Operation Center (ROC).
