Cupertino Electric has completed engineering and construction of a 20MW solar photovoltaic (PV) project for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in California, US.

PG&E senior vice president John Conway said that the new solar facilities demonstrate the company’s ongoing commitment to providing its customers with some of the cleanest energy in the nation.

"We’re proud that more than half of our electricity comes from sources that are renewable or emit no greenhouse gases," added Conway.

Built under the PG&E’s five year 500-MW Solar PV Program, the Huron-located project is set for Commercial operation by the end of June 2012.

"This third successful PG&E project leveraged the knowledge Cupertino Electric gained on past utility-scale projects for PG&E and the skills of our outstanding in-house engineering and construction teams," said Cupertino Electric energy alternatives division vice president of operations Paul Aggarwal.
