OPDE and Sacramento-Yolo Port District Plan 24 MW Photovoltaic Project (Calif.)

OPDE U.S. Corporation and the Sacramento-Yolo Port District have entered into an agreement to develop a 24 megawatt solar power generation facility using MECASOLAR single axis tracking arrays manufactured in the United States. The project will be located on 160 acres in Yolo County, California.

OPDE U.S. is excited to have the opportunity to work with the staff of the City of West Sacramento and the port, who have shown a very progressive and entrepreneurial spirit in considering the merits of this project. The Project will be built on public land leased from the Sacramento-Yolo Port District, a public entity of the State of California formed under the River Port District Act.

The port commission has authorized city/port staff to continue negotiations with OPDE U.S. during a regularly scheduled board meeting. Interconnection applications, site environmental review, and county use permits are underway. The site is currently used for the storage and drying of dredge material from the ports deep water channel, and grazing. Both of these uses will continue after development of the solar project.

The project equipment and facilities will be owned and maintained by OPDE U.S. The facility will incorporate 1,800 MECASOLAR MS-1E TRACKER 10 seasonal one axis azimuth trackers.
