Athos I

The Athos I solar project is located in Riverside County, California. It has a long-term contract for Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) with Direct Energy Business and an energy contract with an undisclosed energy trader. Intersect Power developed the project and brought in its long-term investor, SoftBank Energy. The project is scheduled to reach commercial operation in winter of 2021, at which point it will produce approximately 800 GWh per year and power over 77,000 California homes. Athos I is sited on previously disturbed, retired agricultural land, minimizing the impact of solar construction on the local environment. The equipment for the project will be provided by First Solar and NEXTracker.
