Commercial operation has begun on the new 75 MW Electrify America Solar Glow 1 solar photovoltaic renewable energy era venture in San Bernardino County, Calif. Electrify America Solar Glow 1 is the results of a 15-year digital power buy settlement (VPPA) with developer Terra-Gen.
The venture’s guardian firm Electrify America is the most important open community of DC quick chargers for electrical autos within the U.S. to enter right into a digital power buy settlement for brand spanking new renewable energy era. This model new building contributes to additionality, by producing new renewable energy that won’t in any other case be out there.
Electrify America’s Solar Glow 1 consists of greater than 200,000 solar panels and encompasses an space over one sq. mile. The milestone renewable energy era solar venture is anticipated to generate 75 MW at peak solar capability, which is corresponding to the power drawn by 500 EVs charging directly at a mean pace of 150 kW. The complete annual manufacturing is projected at 225 GWh.
In 2022, Electrify America powered greater than 5 million buyer charging periods or 3.5 instances the periods in 2021. These periods delivered roughly 173 GWh of electrical energy, enabling an estimated 493 million miles of electrical driving and averted consumption of roughly 21 million gallons of gasoline.
