RV Storage Facility Takes Advantage of PG&E Power Purchase Agreement
An RV and boat storage facility in Oakley, Calif., will use S-Energy’s solar modules for shade, while generating 1.68 MW DC of solar power purchased by PG&E under its Feed-In-Tariff Program.
S-Energy’s 295 W solar modules will provide shaded parking on 170,000 square feet of canopies for the Executive RV & Boat Storage facility. The canopy parking engineered and constructed by Baja Construction will be the backbone of a solar energy facility engineered and constructed by Cenergy Power, a division of BAP Power Corporation.
Under PG&E’s Small Generator Feed-In-Tariff (“FiT”) program, PG&E will purchase the solar power generated at this site under a 20 year contract. PG&E’s FiT program became effective in February 2008. PG&E purchases power from its customers who install eligible renewable generation. Once the customers interconnect to PG&E’s grid, PG&E will pay them for energy they generate, but do not apply to serve on-site load.
