Recurrent Energy, a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, and Peninsula Clean Energy announced the development of a new 100-MW solar facility in California.

The Mustang Two solar project in Kings County is expected to begin operations in 2019. Peninsula Clean Energy, San Mateo County’s official electricity provider, will purchase power generated through a 15-year power purchase agreement.

“With this project, PCE has contracted for over 300 megawatts of clean, renewable energy from new facilities that are being built specifically to serve our customers in San Mateo County,” said Jan Pepper, CEO of PCE. “Recurrent Energy is an excellent partner for communities like ours that want access to cost-effective, clean electricity from California.”
