Mustang Two Whirlaway Solar Farm Officially Operating

Mustang Two Whirlaway, a 100 MW solar project in Kings County, California, has officially launched and will generate clean and affordable electricity for Peninsula Clean Energy customers.

“This is even more new steel in the ground that will help our customers and the wider community take another important step towards renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions reduction,” said Jan Pepper, CEO of Peninsula Clean Energy. “It shows again how renewable energy projects can provide significant jobs and other economic benefits in our state.”

The 100 MW Mustang Two Whirlaway project was developed by Idemitsu Renewables in Lemoore, California. The project employed 560 people at peak times, half of them from Kings County, and nearly 223,000 man hours. The construction of the Mustang project is governed by a five-party project work agreement involving the International Brotherhood of Electricians, Ironworkers, Carpenters, Laborers and Plant Engineers. Associated economic development in the county also included approximately $ 2.8 million in materials, services, local license and permit fees – nearly $ 1 million of which went directly to Kings County.

So far, Peninsula Clean Energy has signed 500 MW of renewable energy sources. In addition to Mustang Two Whirlaway, the 200 MW Wright solar project went live in January, making it the largest renewable energy facility built for a community choice aggregator.
