Project helps meet California renewable generation goals
The Energy Alternatives Division of Cupertino Electric, Inc. recently completed two solar generation projects in Huron, Calif., totaling 30MW that were engineered and constructed for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). The 20MW and 10MW solar projects are the fourth and fifth in a series Cupertino Electric has designed and built for PG&E since 2011 under the utility’s clean energy initiative.
Construction of the two sites began in late 2012 and concluded in May 2013, when the two sites became fully operational. The PG&E solar projects total 30 MW and feature 139,600 fixed-tilt solar modules installed by Cupertino Electric. Since 2011, when Cupertino Electric began working with PG&E to meet state-mandated renewable generation goals, the engineering and construction company has installed more than 385,700 solar modules for the utility.
