General comments:

The proposed project is a 105 MW facility to be scaled up to 245 MW, that's why sometimes it is referred to in some websites as Phase I and Phase II.

The estimated annual energy generation is 220.8 GWh (105 MW) and 515.1 GWh (245 MW)

PPA was signed with Southern California Edison for 20 years and was approved by California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on December, 2008.

In CPUC status of Renewable Portfolio Standard as of September 2012, the project appears as "Contract Terminated" under the group of "Cancelled" contracts.
