Creating Energy and Jobs in the California High Desert
In January 2015, Clean Focus completed a 3.75 MW ground-mounted solar project sited on 20 acres in the city of Adelanto, California. The system was partially funded by the EB-5 investment program to support local job creation in areas of high unemployment.
In building Adelanto, Clean Focus strove to strike a balance between installing a significant capital project and preserving the natural beauty of the high desert. The project will generate 7,156,000 kW hours of clean electricity a year thus reducing CO2 emissions by 4,934 tons — the equivalent of removing more than 1,040 passenger vehicles from the road.
Construction financing was provided by Seminole Financial Services; Sol Construction led building efforts, and MPE Consulting served as lead engineer. The project sells electricity to Southern California Edison under the California Renewable Energy Small Tariff (CREST) program.
Clean Focus Corporation developed, financed, owns and operates the solar power system.
It was a pleasure to work with Clean Focus and partners on this project. We’re proud to have flexed our extensive construction expertise to build this magnificent 3.75 MW project.
