The objective of the NCPA Solar Project 1 is to develop a fleet of Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Power Plants throughout participating member service territories to start construction by the end of 2019. The plants will be managed by the Northern California Power Agency (NCPA) as a single project to be owned and operated by a third-party provider through a power purchase agreement (PPA). After the initial 5 - 7 years of operation, NCPA plans to purchase the plants.
The project will be executed in three phases:
? Phase 1 - Determine member interest and requirements and identify potential sites.
? Phase 2 - Site selection and screening, plan development and selection of a third-party provider to fulfill design, construction and
operation through a PPA.
? Phase 3 - Construction and operation per the PPA.
