PSEG Solar Source, a subsidiary of New Jersey-based Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG), has completed its 19.3 MW DC (15 MW AC) PSEG Badger 1 Solar Farm, located on approximately 172 acres, west of Phoenix.
The solar farm was developed and constructed by juwi solar Inc. (JSI). Arizona Public Service Co. will purchase the electricity produced by the facility through a 30-year agreement.
Badger 1 Solar will generate enough energy to meet the electricity needs of approximately 3,560 homes, according to PSEG.
The solar farm uses crystalline panels manufactured by Canadian Solar and a single-axis tracking system manufactured by Array Technologies. In addition, the project includes inverters manufactured and tested by Phoenix-based Power One.
Under a separate agreement, JSI will also perform operations and maintenance services for the project.Â
The company says this is the second Arizona project and the sixth solar project for PSEG Solar Source – totaling 88.5 MW DC. JSI developed and constructed each of these projects.
