juwi solar Inc. (JSI), the U.S. subsidiary of Germany-based juwi Group, has begun construction on two large free-field photovoltaic installations in Ohio and Florida.
The projects include the Wyandot Solar Energy Generation Facility, a 12 MW solar power plant in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. When completed, this project is expected to generate approximately 15.8 million kWh of electrical energy per year. In June, AEP Ohio executed an agreement to purchase all renewable energy and associated renewable energy certificates (RECs) generated from the facility over a 20-year period.
JSI has also begun construction on a 15 MW solar power plant located in Jacksonville, Fla. This facility is expected to generate approximately 22.4 million kWh of electricity per year. In May 2009, municipally owned utility JEA agreed to purchase all renewable energy and RECs generated from the facility over a 30-year period.
Both projects are scheduled to reach commercial operation by the summer of next year, JSI says.
