Sponsored by

Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, bought a 4.5 MW (AC) solar project in San Francisco from solar project developer Recurrent Energy.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is purchasing the solar energy generated from the Sunset Reservoir Solar Power Project under a 25-year power purchase agreement.

The solar power system, developed and operated by Recurrent Energy since 2010, consists of nearly 24,000 solar panels mounted on top of the Sunset Reservoir. The facility provides electricity for the city and county of San Francisco's municipal services and facilities.

In April, Duke Energy Renewables bought the 21 MW Highlander solar power projects in Twentynine Palms, Calif. The Sunset Reservoir project adds to Duke Energy Renewables' more than 100 MW of generating capacity at 16 U.S. solar farms. Since 2007, Duke Energy has invested more than $3 billion to grow its commercial wind and solar business.
