Located on approximately 1,260 acres of private land in Kern Countys Mojave Desert, Valentine Solar is adjacent to EDF REs Catalina Solar 2 Project, which is also contracted with SCE. Valentine will be comprised of horizontal single-axis tracking solar photovoltaic (PV) technology generating power equivalent to avoiding more than 225,000 metric tons of CO? emissions annually.* This is equivalent to the emissions of 48,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.
EDF Renewable Energy is pleased to once again partner with Southern California Edison to bring affordable solar energy to SCEs customers, through the Valentine Solar Project, commented Dai Owen, Director, Power Marketing. As solar energy becomes increasingly cost-competitive against other forms of generation, we continue to expand our solar portfolio to meet the growing appetite of our utility partners and corporate clients for clean, renewable energy.
EDF Renewable Energy is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 7.8 gigawatts of wind, solar, biomass, and biogas projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
