New 11.1MW Rooftop Project for Prologis (PLD)

ProLogis Renewable Energy just announced that it signed a new agreement with Southern California Edison for 100MW of power. The first phase of this agreement is an 11.1MW rooftop solar project covering 2.5 million square feet of roof space across five buildings. Southern California Edison will own and operate the system, and will pay ProLogis rent for use of its roof and construction management fees. Construction is expected to start in the summer of 2010

In a press release, Drew Torbin, vice president of renewable energy for ProLogis, commented on the agreement:

“Our partnership with SCE works well for both parties – we have flat, available roof space and local construction management expertise in place to support the growth of SCE’s renewable energy program. With approximately 45 million square feet in SCE’s service area, this installation is one part of a larger, multi-phase project.”
