The Air Force and EDF Renewable Energy, formerly enXco, have begun negotiations to lease 195 acres at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., for solar energy development, following the company’s selection as the highest-ranked offeror for an enhanced use leasing project, officials announced last week. The project calls for San Diego-based EDF Renewable Energy, the U.S. subsidiary of EDF-Energies Nouvelles, to develop up to 27 megawatts of solar power capacity at the northern California base. “The Travis project is one of several renewable energy EULs in development that will help the Air Force meet its energy goals, and provide power for local community use,” said Kathleen Ferguson, deputy assistant secretary for installations.
