Constellation Energy and Denver-based Oak Leaf Energy Partners have signed an agreement for the development of a new 4.4 MW solar installation at Denver International Airport (DIA). Constellation Energy will finance, own and operate the solar installation, and DIA will purchase the electricity produced by the system from Constellation Energy over a 20-year period.
Intermountain Electric plans to begin construction of the project – the largest customer-sited solar photovoltaic installation in Colorado, according to the companies – in the fall, with completion expected by early 2011.
The system is expected to supply approximately 7,000 MWh of electricity to DIA each year, utilizing approximately 19,000 Yingli Solar photovoltaic panels.
