“We are extremely pleased to collaborate with PG&E to advance PG&E’s renewable energy program and support job creation in the Central Valley.”
“PG&E’s solar PV program is focused on speeding up the delivery of renewable energy to our customers,” said Randy Livingston, vice president of power generation for PG&E. “These projects demonstrate PG&E’s ongoing commitment to providing more green power and being a leader in California’s clean energy future.”
The 20-MW Stroud Solar Station and 15-MW Westside Solar Station were designed and built by Cupertino Electric under a five-year PG&E clean energy initiative, which includes up to 250 MW of utility-owned solar generation. The Stroud and Westside sites represent part of the first 50 MW of PG&E’s utility-owned generation. The generation plants are interconnected to the electric grid with the approval of California’s Independent System Operator (CAL-ISO) at local PG&E distribution substations.
“Our ability to optimize the PV solar station design and integrate innovative construction techniques allowed us to simultaneously deliver both solar PV stations cost-effectively and ahead of schedule,” said John Curcio, chief commercial officer for Cupertino Electric, Inc. “We are extremely pleased to collaborate with PG&E to advance PG&E’s renewable energy program and support job creation in the Central Valley.”
