Canadian Solar subsidiary Recurrent Energy has signed a 25-year power purchase agreement for the 63 MWac/88 MWp Stanford Solar Generating Station #2.

The Stanford Solar Generating Station #2, located on over 400 acres in Kings County, California, will power the equivalent of 15,750 homes with clean electricity.

This PV project, together with Stanford University’s existing 67 MWp solar PPA and its 5 MWp rooftop installation, will produce clean renewable electricity each year to equal the university’s annual electricity consumption.

The Stanford Solar Generating Station #2 is scheduled to enter operation in 2021. Canadian Solar announced last month that another 150 MWac portion of the Slate portfolio has PPAs executed with Silicon Valley Clean Energy and Monterey Bay Community Power.
