March 18 (Renewables Now) - Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC) has expanded an existing partnership with independent power producer EDF Renewables North America to now build distributed solar plants totalling 60 MW.

The not-for-profit, member-owned power supply cooperative previously contracted the EDF Renewables subsidiary to develop 30 MW at 10 to 12 prospective sites across ODEC member service territories in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. The latest agreement envisages the construction of 15 solar parks through 2021.

ODEC will buy the output of the solar arrays at a fixed rate under power purchase agreements (PPA).

EDF Renewables will take care of all permitting requirements and approvals as well as the design, engineering and commissioning of the solar projects. It won the job through a competitive RFP led and managed by National Renewables Cooperative Organization Inc (NRCO).
