Southern Company subsidiary Southern Power acquired the company's second solar PV installation in California – the 20-MW Adobe Solar Facility – in partnership with Turner Renewable Energy. The Southern Power-Turner Renewable Energy partnership's sixth solar project acquisition is expected to close upon the successful completion of construction, which is anticipated in spring 2014. The Adobe Solar Facility will be built, operated and maintained by SunEdison. Construction of the project began this fall. The new facility will be located on a 160-acre site in Kern County, Calif. Electricity generated by the plant will serve a 20-year PPA with Southern California Edison.
