SunEdison, a solar energy services provider and a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials, has announced a new 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to deliver 20 MW to Riverside Public Utilities (RPU), the municipal electric utility of the City of Riverside, Calif.

SunEdison will construct the 20 MW North Lake I Solar plant on previously disturbed land owned by the Metropolitan Water District near the Diamond Valley Lake reservoir in western Riverside County. SunEdison says the project will reduce the need for costly transmission upgrades due to its proximity to load centers, including the RPU service territory. The developer plans to begin construction on the project in 2014 and begin delivering power in 2015.

"Our partnership with SunEdison will enable us to deliver clean energy to our citizens at cost-effective rates while also enhancing reliability with peak-producing power," says David H. Wright, RPU’s general manager.
