18 MW Westlands Solar Array In California Now Operational

Swinerton Renewable Energy has completed the 18 MW Westlands Solar Farms project near Huron, Calif. Swinerton built the photovoltaic array and new substation on 85 acres adjacent to Interstate 5 under contract from Clenera.

The Westlands facility includes more than 77,000 JinkoSolar PV modules mounted on Array Technologies DuraTrack HZ single-axis tracking systems. The project includes 18 Advanced Energy AE 1000NX inverters.

The plant is connected by a half-mile-long generation tie and transmission line from the substation into a new 70 kV switchyard. The project is producing and selling power under a power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas and Electric.
