The second phase of the Regional Renewable Energy Procurement Program (R-REP) has awarded SunEdison to install 3MWdc of solar systems in California. SunEdison has installed over 18MWdc of solar projects at 9 different public agencies in Bay Area under the first phase of R-REP, including an 11MWdc project in Alameda County.
The 3 MW of solar systems will be installed at 9 different Alameda County sites, including the Santa Rita Jail and other administration and functional centers. The County of Alameda is projecting $9.5 million in savings over the life of the projects. Upon completion, the solar systems will eliminate the emission of more than 77 million pounds of carbon dioxide over twenty years, the equivalent of taking more than 7,300 cars off the road.
"We are honored that Alameda County has chosen to expand their partnership with SunEdison," said SunEdison Managing Director of Western USA Sales Sam Youneszadeh. "Adding a second phase to the successful R-REP is a testament to Alameda's commitment to maximize solar power in Bay area communities and become a sustainable county."
SunEdison expects to add these projects to the Call Right Projects List for TerraForm Power. SunEdison anticipates offering these projects to TerraForm Power for investment upon completion. Operation and maintenance of the solar systems will be performed by SunEdison Services, which provides global 24/7 asset management, monitoring and reporting services.
