Renewable Energy Systems (RES), a leader in the development, engineering, and construction of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in the Americas is pleased to announce the company has been selected by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) to construct a 58 MWac solar PV system in Rich County, Utah. Construction began in early September 2018 with scheduled completion in August 2019.
The project consists of 636,000 FS4 solar modules on a NEXTracker solar tracking system designed to withstand high altitude and snow load conditions in Northern Utah. RES will self-perform key project scopes, including pile, tracker, module, PV/MV electrical, and substation installation. The project will employ approximately 170 workers during peak construction with a target to hire 80% locally. Once operational, the solar project will generate enough clean energy to power nearly 14,000 homes annually.
“RES is delighted to be working with CIP on one of its first large-scale solar projects,” says Tim Jordan, RES Vice President of Solar Construction. “RES has a proven track record in the design and delivery of solar farms, with over 972 MW in solar projects completed globally.”
