Project overview

Leeward Renewable Energy’s (LRE) Rabbitbrush solar project is currently under construction and is expected to become operational in August 2022. When complete, the project will utilize 415,000 photovoltaic modules provided by U.S.-based First Solar and have a solar generation capacity of 100 MW. The project will also integrate a 20 MW/50 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS). Energy generated by the project will be provided to not-for-profit, community-owned electricity providers Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE) and Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) through two 15-year power purchase agreements.
