Constellation, the retail supply subsidiary of Exelon Corp., and Mohave Electric Cooperative Inc. completed the construction of a 13.8-MW solar facility in Fort Mohave, Ariz.
The 84-acre facility required no upfront capital from Mohave Electric and is owned and operated by Constellation, which will sell the output to Mohave Electric under a 30-year purchase agreement. The agreement also gives Mohave Electric the option to purchase the facilities after six years, according to a Jan. 18 news release.
This is the second solar facility completed by the two companies and joins a 5-MW solar project completed in 2015. The two facilities together are expected to annually produce about 38,000 MWh, which is enough to power approximately 4,000 homes.
