15 MW for Kaiser Permanente
Spanning multiple sites throughout Northern and Southern California, Recurrent Energy's 15 MW of solar PV projects have helped Kaiser Permanente become a national leader in sunstainability and renewable energy.
Recurrent Energy's projects with Kaiser Permanente include 15 sites scattered across northern and southern California. Recurrent Energy will build, own, and operate a total of 16 solar energy projects, selling 100% of the generated electricity to Kaiser.
Kaiser Permanente sees renewable and clean energy as a key part of our environmental and sustainability strategy. As a health care organization, we are concerned with the health of our patients and our communities.
The suite of projects demonstrates the potential for distributed-scale projects to have a major impact when aggregated across multiple commercial or industrial sites. In the first year alone, Recurrent Energy's projects will offset an estimated 16,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions—roughly equivalent to the impact of taking 3,000 cars off the road, according to U.S. EPA national metrics.
The projects also underscore Recurrent Energy's expertise with system design, utilizing a variety of system configurations and technologies to deliver the 15 MW of power. The solar energy systems include rooftop solar, ground-mount solar, and elevated solar above existing parking garages and ground-level parking spaces.
