ReneSola Ltd, a leading fully integrated solar project developer, announced today that it signed a power purchase agreement ("PPA") for a solar and battery system with Northern California-based Valley Clean Energy ("VCE"), a public electricity provider serving over 125,000 customers in cities of Woodland and Davis, and Unincorporated Yolo County.

The project is located in Madison, Yolo County, California. It will add 20?MW?of solar power and 6.5 MW/26 MWh (4-hour) of battery energy storage to the Northern California grid to serve VCE's customers. The PPA has a duration of 20 years. The project is expected to reach commercial operation by the third quarter of 2022.

Mr. Yumin Liu, Chief Executive Officer of ReneSola Power, commented, "This marks an important milestone for us, as it is our first long-term power purchase agreement for a solar-plus-storage system that will provide significant benefits to the local community. In addition, we are excited to partner and build a strong relationship with the VCE team through this transaction. We value the support and trust of the VCE team and look forward to future collaboration, as we continue to execute on our strategy to grow our pipeline in the U.S."

Mr. Gordon Samuel, Assistant General Manager and Director of Power Resources of Valley Clean Energy, said, "VCE is proud to partner with ReneSola Power in the development of this local renewable energy project. This project will support green jobs, benefit Yolo County, and supply VCE customers with cost-effective clean energy for the next twenty years."

ReneSola Power was awarded this PPA after responding to VCE's request for offer (RFO) of procurement of cost-effective local renewable energy. The project brings local investment, grid-benefits to the VCE service territory, and will be designed and constructed to be pollinator-friendly, thus providing habitat for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators that are critical to agricultural production in this important food producing region. This project will also help meet the Yolo County Climate Action Plan goals to reduce carbon emissions associated with the production of electricity.
