UTICA AVENUE SOLAR FACILITY PROJECT
JATON LLC has commenced preliminary engineering on its Utica Avenue Solar Facility Project.
The Utica Avenue Solar Facility Project is a 3 MW(AC) renewable energy solar farm situated on a 40-acre parcel in Kettleman City, in Kings County, California. The solar energy generated by the Utica Avenue Solar Facility will serve approximately 1,000-homes.
The solar energy generated from the Utica Avenue Solar Facility will be transmitted into the California Electrical Grid via Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) infrastructure. The Utica Avenue Solar Facility’s energy will add to California’s renewable energy supply portfolio and assist in reaching Governor Brown’s goal of 100% renewable energy use in California by 2045.
JATON’s Utica Avenue Solar Facility Project expects to execute a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) via PG&E’s Regional Renewable Choice Program in 1Q 2021, and is scheduled to complete construction and begin delivering solar power in 4Q 2021.
