  SEPV MOJAVE WEST SOLAR PROJECT
PROJECT FACT SHEET

  Solar Electric Solutions ("SES"), through its wholly owned subsidiary SEPV Mojave West LLC, developed and permitted the twenty megawatt (MWac) SEPV Mojave West solar project. Cost-competitive, renewable power generated by the facility is sold to Southern California Edison under a 20-year power purchase agreement, awarded in 2013 to the SES subsidiary under the fourth solicitation of the CPUC's Renewable Auction Mechanism Program (RAM).

The project is located in the southeastern portion of Kern County west of the community of Mojave. The SEPV Mojave West Solar Project has minimal impacts, using negligible water during construction for dust suppression and during operations for module washing.

The project provides the State of California with a new source of renewable energy to assist in achieving the state's Renewable Portfolio Standards, while creating jobs that boost the local economy, and supplying enough electricity to power 8,000 homes. By generating clean renewable energy and avoiding any of the carbon emissions that would be produced by a fossil-fueled power plant, the project will contribute to cleaner air and result in a smaller carbon footprint for the state.
   
  SES sold SEPV Mojave West LLC to Sustainable Power Group in January 2015 after completing development. The project reached commercial operation in June 2016.
