Duke Energy Renewables has bought two California solar farms with a total generating capacity of 50 megawatts.

Duke Energy’s commercial renewable-energy subsidiary bought the 20-megawatt Seville I and 30-megawatt Seville II projects from Kruger Energy. Terms were not announced.

The acquisitions bring Duke Renewables’ solar capacity in California to 100 megawatts at six sites.

Energy produced by Seville I will be sold to San Diego Gas & Electric, while the output of Seville II will be purchased by Imperial Irrigation District. Construction on both is underway and is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
