NRG Completes 20-Megawatt Solar Farm in Southern Californiaby
NRG Energy Inc. and its yieldco unit completed a 20-megawatt solar farm in Southern California.
The farm was jointly funded by both NRG and NRG Yield Inc., the companies said in a statement Monday. Edison International’s Southern California Edison unit has a 20-year power purchase agreement with the facility.
The Solar Oasis farm was built in the western Mojave Desert, five miles (8 kilometers) from Palmdale, California, on land mostly leased from the U.S. Air Force. It will provide enough electricity to power about 3,280 homes.
