80-MW solar project proposed for California

6 July 2007 — Kings River Conservation District and Cleantech America LLC have entered into a multi-year agreement for Cleantech America to provide up to 80 MW of utility scale, peak solar power to the recently formed San Joaquin Valley Power Authority.

Upon full build-out, the solar farm would be the nation’s largest utility scale photovoltaic facility. The memorandum of understanding calls for the facility to be developed in phases of 10 MW in 2009, 30 MW in 2010 and 40 MW in 2011, for a total of 80 MW.

Cleantech America has also announced an agreement with PG&E for a 5-MW solar farm, CalRENEW-1, which also will be located in Fresno County.
