8minutenergy completes 26MW Redwood 4 Solar Farm
8minutenergy Renewables which is ideally the largest independent solar developer in the U.S commemorated the completion of 26 MW-dc (20 MW-ac) Redwood 4 Solar Farm situated in Kern County, California. Project construction was initiated in mid–September 2017.
Redwood 4 is the first operational project to serve as a dedicated resource for Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E’s) Solar Choice program, providing clean energy for California residents. PG&E’s Solar Choice program offers Northern and Central California residents and businesses the option to go solar without installing panels by purchasing their electricity from solar energy generated from projects such as this.
Martin Hermann, 8minutenergy’s CEO and Founder claimed “8minutenergy’s heritage is in California, and we are building some of the world’s largest solar farms here. Today is another landmark achievement as we complete the final installation in our 100 MW Redwood solar cluster.”
Swinerton Renewable Energy entrusted with the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor for Redwood 4. REC Group supplied the solar panels for the project, and NEXTracker provided their smart solar tracking solution.
