Exelon Generation has signed a 15-year agreement with Community Energy Solar to buy power and renewable energy credits from a 6MW solar power project in the US state of Pennsylvania.

The power project, which is being built by Community Energy in Lancaster County, will include approximately 25,000 solar panels that will be installed on approximately 30 acres.

The solar facility is expected to generate approximately 7.5 million kWh of electricity per year and avoid about 3,800 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Exelon Corp senior vice president Kenneth Cornew said that this power purchase agreement allows Exelon to provide new clean energy to the market, which is a key goal of the company’s business strategy, Exelon 2020: a Low Carbon Roadmap.

Community Energy Solar develops utility-scale solar power projects nationally with offices in Pennsylvania and Colorado.
