Duke Energy Renewables, a subsidiary of Duke Energy announced that its 150 MW North Rosamond solar project in Kern County, Calif., has begun commercial operation. It is the largest solar project in Duke Energy Renewables’ fleet. The 150-MW project, which contains over 477,000 solar panels, is located on approximately 1,188 acres outside of Rosamond, Calif., and will power approximately 71,000 homes. The North Rosamond solar project is Duke Energy Renewables’ sixth solar generation facility in Kern County.

The energy generated from the North Rosamond solar project is being sold to Southern California Edison under a 15-year agreement.

The project, which Duke Energy Renewables acquired from a subsidiary of Clearway Energy Group in April 2019, employed as many as 500 individuals during the peak construction period.

The facility’s design, procurement of PV modules, inverters, balance of plant systems and construction of the project were performed by First Solar Electric California’s engineering, procurement and construction subsidiary under a fixed-price EPC agreement for the project.

Mr Rob Caldwell, president of Duke Energy Renewables said that “North Rosamond is a great addition to our growing solar portfolio. California is a leader in renewable energy, and we’re pleased to support the state’s efforts by continuing to provide cost-efficient renewable energy to meet residents’ needs.”
