MCE completes 3-MW solar project in Napa County, California

By Kelly Pickerel, Solar Power World

California community choice aggregation (CCA) MCE has completed its first local, renewable energy project in Napa County. Along with developer Renewable Properties, MCE held a ribbon cutting for the 3-MW American Canyon Solar Project this month.

This is the 12th local, small-scale renewable energy project MCE has completed in its four-county service area — and MCE’s first Feed-In Tariff (FIT) project in Napa County. The FIT program allows small-scale renewable energy projects to become long-term suppliers to MCE. MCE has approximately 31 MW of local renewable projects in its service area, with ~25 MW operational and ~6 MW in the pipeline.
