Plant description

The Turlock Irrigation District Solar Plant (TID) is located in Rosamond, Kern County, California, in the United States and commenced commercial operations in late 2016. TID has a secured 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Turlock Irrigation District.

Energy production of the utility-scale solar plant is underwritten by minimum performance guarantees provided by SunPower. SunPower is a global leader in the manufacture of high quality solar modules and development of utility-scale solar plants.

Funding for New Energy Solar’s acquisition of the plant was completed shortly after the plant commenced commercial operations in December 2016, with New Energy Solar acquiring a substantial majority interest in the plant.
