SCPPA entered into an agreement for off-taking energy from the Columbia Two solar project in 2013. This facility is located in Kern County, California east of Bakersfield. The panels in this plant are single axis tracking, meaning that they have the ability to move back and forth to track the movement of the sun as the earth rotates; receiving as much energy from the sun as possible throughout the day.
Through July the plant averaged 98.5% availability with no unexcused hours. The year to date capacity factor is currently higher than 2015.
