Juwi building 90 MW of solar in Colorado


Germany’s juwi group has confirmed that its Colorado-based U.S. subsidiary juwi Inc. has begun work on the development of 90 MW of solar PV in its home state.

Construction of two of the three solar farms to be built under the terms of the project has already begun, and juwi Inc. is confident that they will achieve commercial operation before the end of the year.

The largest of the three solar plants – the 37.8 MW San Isabel Solar Energy Center – has already been sold to PSEG Solar Source. Juwi will act as both EPC and O&M contractor for this facility, which is located in Las Animas County and will, once complete, boast 120,000 solar modules installed across 300 acres.

A 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) has already been signed with Tri-State Generation and Transmission for this plant, and juwi has already concluded a deal to sell its 36.3 Larimer Solar Energy Center to PSEG Solar Source, with an eye on also securing a similar PPA with the state utility.

The third solar plant to be built under the project’s umbrella is to be a 15.9 MW solar farm currently named Victory Solar. Juwi has already agreed a long-term PPA with Intermountain Rural Electric Association (IREA) for this solar farm, which will break ground later this year, the company confirmed.
