Duke Energy Renewables acquires 20-MW Longboat Solar Project in California from EDF Renewable Energy
Duke Energy Renewables has acquired the development assets associated with the proposed 20-megawatt (MW-AC) Longboat Solar Power Project in California from EDF Renewable Energy. The project will be built in San Bernardino County near the city of Barstow. With this addition, Duke Energy Renewables has seven solar power projects in California totaling more than 130 megawatts, enough to power about 40,000 average homes. "Longboat is a great addition to our growing California solar portfolio," said Greg Wolf, Commercial Portfolio president, Duke Energy. "In addition to utility-scale solar projects, we've also made investments in California distributed generation and energy management systems for commercial and industrial companies, which enables us to offer a full array of services in the state and across the U.S." The energy generated from Longboat and associated renewable energy credits (RECs) will be sold to Southern California Edison through a 20-year agreement.
