CIPCO TO PURCHASE 100MW FROM CLENERA’S WAPELLO SOLAR FACILITY
Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO) and Clenera LLC have executed a power purchase agreement (PPA) that will bring 100MW of solar capacity from Clenera’s Wapello Solar facility in Louisa County, Iowa. CIPCO will purchase 100% of the energy and capacity for 25 years from the Wapello Solar Facility starting in December 2020, while Clenera will retain all renewable attributes from the project. The Wapello Solar facility when complete, will be comprised of bifacial panels with single-axis tracking technology improving performance of the array by 25 – 35% and be the largest solar array in Iowa.
NRCO assisted CIPCO in PPA negotiations with Clenera.
