EDF Renewable Energy has dedicated the 143 MW Catalina Solar project, located in Kern County, Calif. The company says Catalina represents its largest utility-scale solar photovoltaic project to date.

The project's generation is provided to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) under a 25-year power purchase agreement. EDF notes that it has 343 MW of renewable energy generation through three projects to meet its contract obligations to SDG&E, all of which are located in Kern County.

"SDG&E has been committed from the start to helping get viable, economic renewable resources developed, and today we again stand with our partner, EDF Renewable Energy, to celebrate another step toward reaching our aggressive goal," says Matt Burkhart, vice president of electric and fuel procurement for SDG&E.

California has a 33% by 2020 renewable portfolio standard.
