Project Summary: 

Cupertino Electric (CEI) installed more than one million solar photovoltaic (PV) modules at the 250-megawatt (MW) AC Copper Mountain Solar 3 project in Boulder City, Nevada. The PV project was for Sempra U.S. Gas & Power (Sempra) and Consolidated Edison Development (Con Ed) and had CEI working alongside international engineering and project management company AMEC Foster Wheeler.

The 1,400-acre PV project was the third Copper Mountain Solar development built by Sempra in Boulder City, Nevada. With the addition of the third phase, the Copper Mountain Solar development represented some of the largest solar PV plants in the United States.

Construction began in September 2013 and featured a fixed-tilt solar racking design. At the peak of the two-year construction schedule, Copper Mountain Solar 3 created approximately 500 solar jobs. At the time it was completed, the project brought Cupertino Electric’s total installed solar capacity to 1,000-MW, making the company one of the largest solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) players in the United States.
