Blue Oak Energy, a commercial and utility photovoltaic system engineering and construction company, has completed the delivery of a 4.2 MW utility-scale solar power generation facility in Gridley, Calif.
The electricity generated by the facility will be directed to two members of the Northern California Power Agency through separate energy meters: the City of Gridley and the Bay Area Rapid Transit. The project was developed by LightBeam Energy Inc.
The ground-mounted project features 17,584 solar panels manufactured by Trina Solar. The modules are mounted on a single-axis tracker system. The solar energy facility is monitored and scheduled by the California Independent System Operator through a secure remote information gateway.
