73 MW new Solar Farm comes online in California


A 73 MW solar project has reached commercial operation in California’s Central Valley.

Located in Tulare County, the Luciana Solar Project is expected to generate enough clean power equivalent to the needs of 20,000 California homes.

East Bay Clean Energy (EBCE) is procuring the power generated by the project through a 15-year power purchase agreement. The project was developed by Idemitsu Renewables.

Indemitsu Renewables CEO Cary Vandenberg celebrated the commissioning of the Luciana project given the “unprecedented supply chain challenges” the solar industry has experienced over the last year.

EBCE is a not-for-profit public agency that operates a Community Choice Energy program for Alameda County, California and fourteen incorporated cities, serving more than 1.7 million residential and commercial customers.

“The Luciana project brings more low-cost renewable energy to EBCE’s portfolio, and it’s another big step forward on EBCE’s path to 100% clean energy for all of our customers by 2030,” said Nick Chaset, EBCE’s CEO.
