AEP Energy Partners has signed a letter of intent with BQ Energy Development, LLC to purchase 100% offtake of the Columbus Solar Park being developed southwest of downtown Columbus, Ohio.
In July, New York-based BQ Energy announced plans to lease the site of a former landfill owned by the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio and build a 50 megawatt (MW) solar facility, pending a long-term power purchase agreement to underwrite the project.
AEP Energy Partners will use the offtake from the project to meet its customers' needs for renewable energy, in addition to supporting potential future renewable energy needs for Columbus, OH if the City's municipal opt-out aggregation initiative is passed.
The solar energy facility is scheduled to be operational by December 2022.
