Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial unit of Duke Energy, has bought a 4.5-megawatt solar project that is the largest in San Francisco from developer Recurrent Energy.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission buys the output of the Sunset Reservoir Solar Power Project under a 25-year agreement. The system’s nearly 24,000 solar panels provide electricity to the city and county’s municipal facilities.

In April, Duke Renewables acquired the 21-megawatt Highlander solar projects in Twentynine Palms, Calif. Duke now owns more than 100 megawatts of capacity at 16 U.S. solar farms.

Terms of the Sunset Reservoir acquisition were not released.
