SunEdison Awarded 33MW of Rooftop Solar Projects

SunEdison Inc. ┬áhas been awarded contracts to build 33 megawatts of rooftop solar projects by Southern California Edison in the utility company’s latest round of solar procurement.

The 17 solar projects will be built on rooftops throughout the Orange County and Inland Empire industrial corridors as part of SCE’s plan to upgrade and modernize the grid for customers in densely populated metro areas and reduce power interruptions during periods of peak demand. The projects were awarded to SunEdison during SCE’s fourth request for offers under the utility company’s Solar Photovoltaic Program.

Southern California Edison, an electric utility that serves more than 14 million residential, commercial, and industrial customers, will purchase the electricity from 17 rooftop solar systems through 20-year power-purchase agreements.

Scheduled to be operational in 2016, the rooftop solar systems will be built on industrial properties across Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles Counties.
