Los Angeles transforms into a Solar City as California becomes a Solar Center


Woodland Hills, California (PRWEB) January 22, 2013 The solar industry is burning up. SunPower sold a pair of massive Southern California solar power plants to a Warren Buffett company.

San Jose-based SunPower sold two Antelope Valley photovoltaic projects to MidAmerican Solar, a subsidiary ofMidAmerican Energy Holdings, itself owned by Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway. The 579-megawatt pair is still under development.

The projects, located in Kern and Los Angeles counties, will together form the largest permitted solar photovoltaic power development in the world, according to SunPower.

The California Public Utilities Commission has approved two long-term power purchase contracts in which the sites will provide renewable energy to Southern California Edison.

MidAmerican Solar also owns the 550-megawatt Topaz Solar Farms project in San Luis Obispo County and holds a 49% stake in the 290-megawatt Agua Caliente solar project in Yuma County, Ariz.

California’s leading solar company, The Solar Center in Woodland Hills, California has seen a sudden leap in sales since the announcement. “People are realizing how much solar power makes sense”, remarked a Solar Center representative.

The Solar Center offers a way to save thousands on energy costs and to increase your property value without increasing your property tax.
