Today marks the financial close and start of construction of Little Bear Solar, comprising four separate solar projects totaling 215 MW in Fresno County, CA.
Little Bear will sell energy and RECs to Marin Clean Energy (MCE) under 20-year busbar power purchase agreements (PPAs). The projects are expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2020. In addition to creating approximately 500 jobs during the construction of the facility, the project will contribute over $2 million in sales and property taxes.
