Solar FlexRack, a division of Northern States Metals and a provider of PV mounting and solar tracker solutions, has completed a contract to supply a 26.4 MW AC solar generation plant for Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE).
The Tobacco Valley solar project, located in Simsbury, Conn., will be installed with Solar FlexRack’s Series G3-X fixed-tilt solution. SRE will serve as the project’s engineering, procurement and construction firm.
Construction is currently underway, and the Tobacco Valley solar project is scheduled for completion this year. The facility is expected to generate enough energy to power 6,800 homes and create over 300 construction jobs.
George Hershman, general manager at SRE, says, “Swinerton Renewable Energy is dedicated to building solar projects that provide maximum value for our clients, our partners and the community, and our suppliers are instrumental in meeting this goal. We’re pleased to have a proven partner like Solar FlexRack on this project.”
