Con Ed seeks market authority for 55 MW of solar projects in California

CED Ducor Solar 1 LLC, CED Ducor Solar 2 LLC and CED Ducor Solar 3 LLC on Nov. 18 jointly requested that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission grant them authority to make market-based wholesale sales of capacity, energy, and certain ancillary services pursuant to the market-based rate tariffs.

  • CED Ducor Solar 1 will own and operate a 20-MW solar project located in Tulare, California.
  • CED Ducor Solar 2 will own and operate a 20-MW solar project located in Tulare, California.
  • CED Ducor Solar 3 will own and operate a 15-MW solar project located in Tulare, California.

The three Ducor projects are within one mile of each other and, therefore, are treated by FERC as one facility. These project companies are wholly-owned direct subsidiaries of CED California Holdings 3 LLC, which is a wholly-owned direct subsidiary of CED California Financing III LLC, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Consolidated Edison Development Inc., which itself is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Consolidated Edison Inc.

These three projects will be interconnected to transmission facilities owned by Southern California Edison (SCE). The Ducor projects will sell all of the electrical output of their facilities to SCE pursuant to a 20-year fixed-price long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) for 100% of their output of energy.
