GE, MetLife to Buy U.S. Solar Farm With Mitsubishi and CitigroupAndrew Herndon
EDF Renewable Energy, a U.S. unit of French utility Electricite de France SA, completed financing for its 143-megawatt Catalina solar project under construction in California’s Mojave Desert.
General Electric Co., MetLife Inc., Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. bought a majority stake in the project and plan to buy the remainder when it enters operation later this year, the San Diego-based EDF unit said today in a statement that didn’t disclose terms.
Sempra Energy’s San Diego Gas & Electric will buy the power produced by Catalina for 25 years to help meet a state requirement for utilities to supply 33 percent of retail electricity from renewable sources by 2020.
First Solar Inc. and Showa Shell Sekiyu KK’s Solar Frontier unit are supplying thin-film photovoltaic panels for the project, according to EDF Renewable Energy’s website.
