Canadian Solar Ontario project

Recurrent Energy, a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, and Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) announced a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 100 megawatts of new solar power.

Peninsula Clean Energy is the community choice energy agency serving San Mateo County.

Solar powered electricity will be delivered to PCE from Recurrent Energy’s Mustang Two solar photovoltaic project in Kings County, in central California. The project is expected to reach commercial operation in 2019. The solar project will begin delivering power to PCE pursuant to the terms of the PPA.

“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.

Mustang Two solar project has a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Ironworkers, Carpenters, Laborers, and Operating Engineers for the construction of the solar project. It is expected to have a peak construction labor force of approximately 400 workers.
