Cupertino Electric Inc. says its Energy Alternatives Division has completed two solar generation projects in Huron, Calif., for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E). The 20 MW and 10 MW solar projects are the fourth and fifth in a series of projects that Cupertino Electric has designed and built for PG&E since 2011 under the utility's clean energy initiative.
‘While we are extremely proud of completing these last two large-scale solar projects for PG&E, we are more proud of the strong relationship that we've built with the utility that has fueled the success of these projects,’ says Paul Aggarwal, vice president of operations for Cupertino Electric's Energy Alternatives Division. ‘With each project, we gain invaluable knowledge and insight that we bring to each subsequent endeavor.’
Construction of the facilities began in late 2012 and finished in May, when they became fully operational. The two PG&E solar projects feature a total of 139,600 fixed-tilt solar modules.
