SunEdison files for EWG status on California solar project

Regulus Solar LLC, developer of a 67.5-MW (ac) solar project in California, on Aug. 11 filed a notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of its status as an exempt wholesale generator.

Regulus, which will own and operate the facility, anticipates that it will achieve commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2014. The facility, located in Kern County, Calif., will be interconnected to the transmission system owned by Pacific Gas and Electric and operated by the California ISO. It will consist of an approximately 67.5 MW (ac) solar facility, as well as a substation, switchyard, and other equipment necessary to interconnect it to the transmission grid.

All of the output of the facility will be sold to Southern California Edison under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
