Swinerton Renewable Energy and Clēnera joined representatives from PG&E, the Dashiell Corporation, the Westlands development team, and D.E. Shaw to celebrate completion of a new 18MW solar project near Huron, California.
The Westlands Solar Farms project is located on 85 acres of land adjacent to Interstate 5 in Fresno County. The project is producing and selling power under contract with PG&E.
General contractor Swinerton built the single-axis tracker photovoltaic array and new substation under contract with Clenera.
The plant is connected by a half-mile-long generation tie and transmission line from the substation into a new 70 kV switchyard.
Swinerton installed 18 AE 1000NX inverters supplied by Advanced Energy.
The project was built at a rapid pace, with more than 5,000 JinkoSolar modules installed per day during peak construction.
With over 3GW of power generation and 630 MW of solar power expertise, Swinerton Renewable Energy offers turnkey solar power solutions for utility-scale and distributed-generation projects, including EPC and O&M services, warranty wraps, performance guarantees, and its industry-leading monitoring and SCADA platform, SOLV.
