Name: 
PG&E: Year 2 Solar
Description: 
Cupertino Electric solar energy engineering design and construction project for PG&E
Location: 
Huron, CA
Project Size: 
20 MW
Project Attributes: 
Engineered
Green
Project Summary: 

In late 2011, Cupertino Electric began construction on a second-year, 20 Megawatt (MW) solar energy engineering and construction project for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) in California’s Central Valley immediately following two successful first-year projects for PG&E in 2011.

Thanks to a relatively dry 2011 winter season and knowledge gained on the last two solar energy projects with PG&E, construction on the project progressed quickly with module installation and inverter setting taking place throughout February and March of 2012.

The 20-MW Huron-based solar station for PG&E was designed and built by our team to meet PG&E’s five-year clean energy initiative, which includes up to 250 MW of utility-owned solar generation. When complete, the generation plant will be interconnected to the electric grid with the approval of California’s Independent System Operator (CAL-ISO) at local PG&E distribution substations.
