The projects will provide power to three offtakers, including Southern California Edison and will produce clean solar electricity to power over 17,000 US homes.

Recurrent Energy COO Sheldon Kimber said that the six solar projects represent tremendous collaboration with county officials, the local communities, wildlife agencies and power utilities.

"Working with these key stakeholders where these projects are sited helps move us into a new era of clean and affordable power," Kimber added.

The projects, which created over 500 new jobs during the construction phase, include the second Recurrent Energy developed portfolio acquired by Google and KKR in November 2013. The first portfolio comprising of four projects was acquired in December 2011.
