Project Summary

In late-2011, Cupertino Electric began construction on a second-year, 20-megawatt (MW) solar energy project for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in Huron, California.  

CEI designed and built the utility-scale solar station for PG&E to meet PG&E’s five-year clean energy initiative, which included up to 250 MW of utility-owned solar generation.

Thanks to a relatively dry 2011 winter season and using knowledge gained during the previous two solar energy projects with PG&E (see PG&E: Year 1 Solar), the photovoltaic project progressed quickly. The team installed modules and set inverters throughout February and March of 2012.
