PVNavigator, LLC Signs a Power Purchase Agreement with Southern California Edison for a 3MW Solar Facility on a Closed Landfill

Project Navigator, Ltd.'s (PNL) PV solar development operating group, PVNavigator, LLC has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement with Southern California Edison for a 3MW (AC) solar photovoltaic (PV) facility on the County of San Bernardino's closed Milliken Sanitary Landfill in Ontario, CA.

BREA, CALIFORNIA – Project Navigator, Ltd. (PNL), via its solar power projects development group, PVNavigator, LLC (PVN), has entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Southern California Edison (SCE) for a 3MW (AC) solar photovoltaic (PV) facility to be located on the County of San Bernardino's closed Milliken Sanitary Landfill located in Ontario, CA. The power generated from the facility will be sold under the terms of the PPA for a period of 20 years. The Milliken Landfill Solar project will assist the utility in meeting their renewable energy portfolio goals.


When online in late 2015, the project will be the only renewable, commercial-scale solar development on a closed municipal landfill in Ontario.

PNL has vast experience in the reuse of closed landfills. These capabilities have been integrated with PNL's more recently developed solar power expertise, under PVNavigator, LLC to negotiate, engineer, finance and construct small-scale, landfill-located, distributed solar power projects nationwide.

Robert Potter, Project Manager at PVN, who was key in securing the PPA commented, "This recent development moves us one step closer to our goals of developing renewable, solar energy solutions on brownfields and urban-located closed landfills that are otherwise deemed as unusable land." PVN will manage all the next phases of the Milliken Landfill PV solar project including design, permitting, financing, construction and startup.

The landfill solar project will deliver a local, green source of power to the community, while preserving land resources. With established site control, an interconnect agreement and now the PPA, PNL will work with the County of San Bernardino in obtaining all necessary land entitlements for the project before construction begins.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
