Abengoa to build a photovoltaic project for EDP Renovaveis in California

- The project will go into operation this year and will supply enough clean energy to power around 5,000 homes.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 24, 2014 -- Abengoa (MCE: ABG.B/P SM /NASDAQ: ABGB), an international company that applies innovative technology solutions for sustainability in the energy and environment sectors, has been chosen by EDP Renovaveis to carry out the engineering, building and implementation of a 30 Megawatt (MW) photovoltaic project in California.


Abengoa will build the project in San Bernardino County, California. It will supply enough clean energy to power around 5,000 homes, reducing energy and fuel consumption as well as carbon emissions to the atmosphere.

Energias de Portugal, S.A. ("EDP"), a vertically-integrated utility company, headquartered in Lisbon, Portugal, is the majority shareholder of EDP Renovaveis.
