To that end, Stanford has contracted with Recurrent Energy for an 88-MW solar photovoltaic plant to be constructed in central California, near Lemoore. The plant is scheduled to go online in late 2021. The new solar plant, to be known as Stanford Solar Generating Station #2, is projected to reduce GHG emissions to 80 pct below peak levels four years ahead of the university's long-range plan.
California enacted legislation earlier this year that requires electricity to be 100 pct carbon-free by 2045. (Source: Stanford University, Dec., 2018)Contact: Stanford University,

MID secures most of its renewable energy credits (RECs) from wind farms in northwestern states and expects to meet California's 33 pct from renewable sources threshold in 2020, but would fall behind a higher mandate by 2023 without the new solar purchase.
MID will spend about $7 million a year buying solar power from NextEra Energy's Blythe IV solar farm in Riverside County near the Arizona border. MID will pay another $5 million a year for power from Recurrent Energy's Mustang Two Barbaro solar farm in Kings County near the Lemoore Naval Air Station.
