Big Beau Solar

About

EDF Renewables signed two 20-year Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) for the 128 megawatt (MWac) with 40 MW/160 MWh battery storage Big Beau Solar+Storage Project in Kern County, California. Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) will purchase 55-percent of the output, and Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP) will purchase 45-percent. The Project is slated to achieve commercial operation by the end of 2021.

The electricity generated at full capacity is enough to meet the consumption of up to 64,000 average California homes. This is equivalent to avoiding more than 315,000 metric tons of CO₂ emissions annually1 which represents the greenhouse gas emissions from 67,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.
