Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 5.42.27 PMConstruction giant Lend Lease with offices in Texas, has its eye on Tulare County where it plans to build a 70 megawatt solar farm with a 50 megawatt battery storage facility.The new power project, one of the largest in the county, will be built on 378 acres west of Hwy 65 and north of Terra Bella.

The new application was heard by the county Project Review Committee in early January.

The company hopes to break grounded in late 2020 and be in service in late 2021 says spokesperson John DeLibero.

The energy project would tie into the grid at a nearby SCE substation.

Power from the battery storage unit can be used to provide electricity when the sun is not shining, Pairing the two energy systems is increasingly popular in California looking to stabilize the load around the clock. This would be the first such dual project in the county.

Lend Lease “plans approximately 400 MW of additional projects across multiple locations in California” says DeLibero

In the US, Lend Lease, among its other construction projects, develops, builds and finances utility-scale solar and storage projects developing renewable solutions to suit the specific needs of large investor owned utilities, municipal and power cooperatives, and corporations.

Founded in Sydney in 1958 by Dutch immigrant and innovator Dick Dusseldorp, Lend Lease was born out of a vision to create a company that could successfully combine the disciplines of financing, development and investment. Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Lend Lease has approximately 12,000 employees internationally.

In California the company is a major developer and builder of large mixed-use projects including one in Downtown LA.
