City of Palmdale and Constellation Complete 976-kW Solar Generation Project
The city of Palmdale announced the completion of an aggregate 976-kW DC solar generation project. Located at Palmdale's Civic Center, DryTown Water Park and Marie Kerr Park, the system is designed to generate more than 1,580 MW-hours of electricity per year and meet nearly 70 percent of the electricity needs for the three sites. Constellation financed the project's development and will own and operate the system. Palmdale will purchase the electricity generated by the system at a fixed-rate through a 20-year PPA with Constellation. The solar power arrays are comprised of approximately 3,200 PV panels.
