Sumitomo Corporation signed a contract to acquire up to 20 percent of Cosan Biomassa S.A., a subsidiary of the world’s largest sugar and ethanol company, Cosan S.A. Industria e Comercio and producer of sugarcane pellets for power generation, subject to the prior approval of anti-trust authorities in some jurisdictions.
TruStar Energy, a developer of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations, was awarded the contract to build and maintain the first CNG fueling station for Long Beach, California.
Ecoplexus Inc., a developer of solar photovoltaic systems, disclosed a 25 MW DC portfolio of projects across California. The projects are a combination of carport and ground-mounted installations, connecting behind-the-meter at a number of state facilities. The generating systems will power the facilities, offset greenhouse gas emissions and reduce energy costs.
The portfolio will provide approximately 30.5 gigawatt-hours of clean electricity annually. That is enough to annually power almost 2,000 households, or offset roughly 21,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
The first seven MW will be completed in August 2015, while the remaining projects are scheduled to complete construction in the spring of 2017. The on-site facilities include state hospitals, military bases and a variety of other facilities.
