AWS Truepower helps EDP with 30-MW solar project in California

AWS Truepower said Feb. 11 that it has provided EDP Renewables, the world’s third largest renewable energy producer, with independent engineering services to support the financing of its Lone Valley Solar Park project.

The Lone Valley project is located in the western Mohave Desert, in San Bernardino County, California, and consists of two adjacent solar farms with a combined capacity of 30 MW (ac). The project closed tax equity financing in December 2014.

Lone Valley is EDP Renewables’ first solar project in North America, AWS noted. Its photovoltaic solar panels mounted on single-axis tracking systems will provide over 80,000 MWh of clean energy annually.

“This is a landmark project for EDP Renewables and AWS Truepower,” said Craig Moller, Director of Due Diligence at AWS Truepower.  “It’s great to see this project placed in service and we are proud to have been a part of it.”

“AWS Truepower provided timely delivery of independent engineering and due diligence services to support the requirements of our financing and power purchase counterparties,” said Milap Shah, Director of Engineering at EDP Renewables North America.

AWS Truepower provides the most accurate, reliable, and innovative clean energy project development, engineering and operations solutions available today. Headquartered in New York, AWS Truepower has offices in North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
