Solar FlexRack, a division of Northern States Metals and a leader in photovoltaic mounting and solar tracker solutions, has completed a contract to supply a 26.4 MWac solar power generation plant for Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE), which will serve as the project’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm. The Tobacco Valley solar project, located in Simsbury, Connecticut, will be installed with Solar FlexRack’s industry-leading Series G3-X fixed tilt solution, known for its ease of installation and reliable performance in challenging climates.
“Swinerton Renewable Energy is dedicated to building solar projects that provide maximum value for our clients, our partners and the community, and our suppliers are instrumental in meeting this goal,” said George Hershman, General Manager, Swinerton Renewable Energy. “We’re pleased to have a proven partner like Solar FlexRack on this project.”
“Swinerton Renewable Energy is an employee-owned organization which maintains a high standard for the work they complete, their employees and commitment to the communities in which they work. They build responsibly and that philosophy is driven throughout their organization,” said Steve Daniel, Executive Vice President of Solar FlexRack.
Construction is currently underway, and the Tobacco Valley solar project is scheduled for completion in 2019. In all, the project is expected to generate enough energy to power 6,800 homes and create over 300 construction jobs.
