2.5 MW solar plant lands in Roswell


Green States Energy has begun operation of its GSE NM-2 plant, a 2.5 MW ground-mounted solar PV project located in the city of Roswell, New Mexico.

Built by S&C Electric Company, the project is now selling its the electricity it is producing to Xcel Energy, the local electric utility that serves the area.

The plant, along with its 2.9 MW sister-project, GSE NM-1, will provide more than 9 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year to the local community, enough to serve the needs of approximately 780 homes in the area.

Tennessee-based Shoals Technologies Group supplied the fixed-tilt ground mount PV mounting structures and the DC electrical components for the Roswell plant.

The New Jersey-based Green States Energy, an independent power producer, focuses on the development, acquisition and operation of clean energy generation facilities. The company currently owns more than 8 MW of operating PV facilities that generate a total annual output of more than 10 million kilowatt hours of electricity across the U.S. as well as two projects contracted for construction totaling 3.5 MW.
