sPower taps Rosendin Electric for EPC services


Renewable energy provider sPower has tapped Rosendin Electric, Inc. (REI), one of the largest private electrical contractors in the U.S., to oversee engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services on its nearly 700 MW in utility-scale solar PV projects slated for this year.

“Aligning ourselves with Rosendin marks one of the key strategic relationships that sPower has prioritized as we look to double our operating portfolio in 2016,” said sPower CEO Ryan Creamer.

Creamer added that Rosendin’s depth of experience with solar facility construction would be instrumental in executing the company’s “aggressive development plans.”

David Lincoln, vice president of REI’s Renewable Energy Group, said sPower had established itself as “a leader in the industry with a solid reputation for responsible development and strong financial backing. This agreement represents a significant portion of solar within our renewables group. sPower projects will have our full attention.”

Construction is scheduled to begin in January, with completion and grid connection projected for April through December 2016.

sPower has also signed a 1 GW PV module supply deal with JinkoSolar – the Chinese company’s largest U.S. contract to date. JinkoSolar will supply more than 3 million high-efficiency PV modules to sPower for its project rollout.
