San Francisco-based solar project developer Recurrent Energy said today that three of its photovoltaic projects in Sacramento County are now in commercial operation.
The projects near the communities of Elk Grove, Galt and Sloughhouse are delivering 50 megawatts of electricity to the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.
The projects are expected to generate around 90 million kilowatt hours in their first year of operation, which is equivalent to the average electricity consumption of more than 7,000 U.S. homes.
The projects are part of a four-project portfolio; the fourth project is under construction and is expected to reach commercial operation later this year.
"We are pleased to see these projects come online to provide renewable energy to our customers," said John DiStasio, SMUD?s general manager and CEO.
Recurrent Energy is a U.S. subsidiary of Sharp Corp. Call The Bee's Mark Glover, (916) 321-1184.
