Stanford Planning 100 pct Solar Energy by 2021 (Ind. Report)
Recurrent Energy
Date: 2018-12-05
In the Golden State, Stanford University is reporting a second solar-generating plant that is slated for construction within the next three years will complete the university's transition to clean power and further shrink campus greenhouse gas emissions.

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, E.J.

MID Buying Solar to Meet Calif. Renewable Mandate (Ind. Report)
Modesto Irrigation District
Date: 2017-10-06
In the Golden State, the Modesto Irrigation District (MID) reports it will purchase approximately $230 million-worth of Southern California-generated solar power over the next 20 years to meet the state's renewable energy mandate. The power will be purchased at a fixed price and sold st the market rate at time of sale.

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.
