Coldwell Solar, the solar company for agricultural, commercial and utility-scale solar, and Sonoma Clean Power (SCP), the public electricity provider for Sonoma and Mendocino counties, announced today the completion of a two-megawatt solar power system located in rural Petaluma. The completion of the solar project will culminate with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 17th at 4990 D Street Extension, Petaluma, California. The 4990 D Street Extension is one of two one-megawatt systems that make up SCP’s renewable energy project. The projects have the capacity to power 600 homes.
“Today is a huge milestone in our journey toward a clean energy future for Sonoma and Mendocino counties,” said SCP CEO Geof Syphers The two one-megawatt projects generate electricity for SCP customers enrolled in the EverGreen service, SCP’s 100 percent local renewable electricity service.
Coldwell Solar developed the two-megawatt solar system for Sonoma Clean Power through Power Purchase Agreements. Under the terms of the 20-year agreements, Coldwell Solar leases land from local landowners, and builds, operates and maintains the solar energy systems for Sonoma Clean Power. The projects are part of SCP’s ProFIT program that allows landowners to lease their under-utilized land to generate clean and renewable utility-scale solar energy.
“We are thrilled to celebrate this achievement,” said Dave Hood, Coldwell Solar CEO. “We look forward to a long partnership helping Sonoma Clean Power deliver on its goal to provide local renewable energy to its sustainably-minded customers.”
