California: Cupertino and Q-Cells to install PV for PG&E


PG&E selected Cupertino’s Energy Alternatives division to both design and build the project, located in Huron, under its utility-owned generation (UOG) program.

According to a statement released, engineering work is already underway. Meanwhile, the project is expected to be completed and grid connected by the middle of next year.

At the end of September, Cupertino announced the completion of two other photovoltaic plants for the utility. Construction began in April on both the 20 MW Helm site and 15 MW Five Points project.

In related news, PG&E has chosen Q-Cells to build two photovoltaic plants for it. Both the 10 MW and 20 MW systems will be located in California’s Central Valley. The work will also be carried out in 2012 under the UOG program.

Overall, the utility is looking to install 250 MW of photovoltaics over the next five years, at a rate of 50 MW annually.
