Enfinity to install 3 PV projects in California


Solar power project developer Enfinity has announced that it will undertake three PV projects in California, worth a total of over three MWs.

The projects are for the City of Parlier, Greenfield Union School District (GUSD) and Muroc Joint Unified School District (MJUSD). The combined energy production is expected to exceed four million kilowatt hours (kWh) annually. The company will provide financing and development services for all three projects.

Specifically, the City of Parlier will receive a 490 kilowatt peak (kWp), ground-mounted PV system, comprising 2,130 solar panels. The system is expected to commence operation by June.

Meanwhile, the Greenfield Union School District will see a 2.2 MWp PV project installed. It will comprise 9,500 solar modules on the rooftops, ground areas and parking lots of 10 of the school district’s campuses. All sites are expected to commence operation by November.

Finally, Muroc Joint Unified School District, located in the Mojave Desert, will use the electricity from a 392 kWp, combined ground-mounted installation powered by 1,666 solar panels. The system is expected to commence operation by the end of this January.

"These projects represent the first of a series of carefully developed and financed solar installations that we nurtured throughout 2010," said Mark Dominé, Enfinity’s vice president of development for Distributed Generation on the West Coast. "As the year progresses, we expect to launch more projects as part of Enfinity’s continuing growth in North America."

Rafael Dobrzynski, Enfinity’s CEO in the Americas added: "(…) we are looking throughout North America to acquire commercial and utility solar projects from 500 kW to 25 MW and above."
