Renewable Energy Systems (RES) has been selected by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) to construct a 58 MW AC solar PV system in Rich County, Utah.
Construction began earlier this month and is scheduled for completion next August. The project will employ approximately 170 workers during peak construction with a target to hire 80% locally. Once operational, the facility will generate enough clean energy to power nearly 14,000 homes annually.
The project consists of 636,000 FS4 modules on a NEXTracker solar tracking system designed to withstand the high altitude and snow load conditions of northern Utah. RES will self-perform key project scopes, including pile, tracker, module, PV/MV electrical and substation installation.
“RES is delighted to be working with CIP on one of its first large-scale solar projects,” says Tim Jordan, RES’ vice president of solar construction. “RES has a proven track record in the design and delivery of solar farms, with over 972 MW in solar projects completed globally.”
