Antelope Valley Solar Ranch One<div class="intro-content copy-section">​​​​​​​​​​​​When fully operational, Antelope Valley Solar Ranch One will be one of the largest solar photovoltaic projects in the world, with approximately 3.8 million solar panels. The project is owned and operated by Exelon Generation. </div><div class="copy-section"><p>Antelope Valley Solar Ranch One is a 242-megawatt solar photovoltaic (PV) project under construction in northern Los Angeles County, Calif. When fully operational, AV Solar Ranch One will be one of the largest PV solar projects in the world, generating enough clean, renewable electricity to power the equivalent of 75,000 average homes per year. Acquired by Exelon in September 2011, full operation is planned for late 2014.</p></div><div class="grouper"><div class="row"><div class="grouper-section"> </div><div class="section-header"><h4>Exelon Generation's culture and business practice make us safety-first</h4></div><div class="grouper-content"><div class="cta-generic"><p>All Exelon Generation facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety. Plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and federal regulatory agencies. Emergency planning includes coordination with local and municipal officials, and thousands of volunteers and first responders.</p><p>To protect the safety and health of our employees, contractors, customers and communities, we've implemented a number of initiatives to promote safe behaviors both on and off the job. </p><p>Exelon has a safety behavior observation program and focused initiatives on areas of high risk. We offer safety training, which is integrated with leadership development programs for supervisors and managers, as well as new employee orientation. And the safety peer group identifies successful pilot programs or new practices that can then be adopted by the entire organization.</p></div></div></div></div><div class="grouper"><div class="row"><div class="grouper-section"> </div><div class="section-header"><h4>Environmental Impact</h4></div><div class="grouper-content"><div class="cta-generic"><p>AV Solar Ranch One demonstrates how Exelon 2020, the company's business and environmental strategy, delivers value through clean, low-carbon energy investments. When completed, the project will displace approximately 140,000 metric tons of carbon emissions per year - the equivalent of taking approximately 30,000 cars off the road. It will generate electricity with no water use, no air emissions and no waste production.</p></div></div></div></div><div class="grouper"><div class="row"><div class="grouper-section"> </div><div class="section-header"><h4>Supporting the local economy</h4></div><div class="grouper-content"><div class="cta-generic"><p>AV Solar Ranch One will deliver economic benefits to the local community and the state of California. These benefits include the generation of state and local tax revenues and creation of up to a peak of 400 construction jobs and up to 15 ongoing operations and maintenance positions, with an emphasis on hiring workers from the local area.</p></div></div></div></div><div class="grouper"><div class="row"><div class="grouper-section"> </div><div class="section-header"><h4>Innovative Technology</h4></div><div class="grouper-content"><div class="cta-generic"><p>AV Solar Ranch One will employ First Solar's FS Series 3 PV Module and deploy its tracking system on a portion of the facility. The technology will increase electricity output by tilting the solar panels to track the daily path of the sun. The project also will feature innovative inverters with voltage regulation and monitoring technologies, which provide more stable and continuous power, increasing the project's efficiency and reliability.</p></div></div></div></div>​​Antelope Valley Solar Ranch One
