juwi, PSEG Solar Source and Platte River Power Authority joined on September 29 to dedicate the PSEG Rawhide Flats Solar Center. The 36.3 MW-dc (30 MW-ac) facility is located 25 miles north of Fort Collins, Colorado.
juwi developed the project and served as its engineering, procurement and construction contractor. The facility will use approximately 117,000 polycrystalline panels.
The PSEG Rawhide Flats Solar Center was built on a 190-acre site leased from the power authority at the Rawhide Energy Station and will generate enough electricity to meet the needs of 8,000 Colorado homes.
PSEG Solar Source has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Platte River, a wholesale generation and transmission provider.
"We are thrilled to be a part of energizing one of the largest solar projects in our home state here in Colorado," said Michael Martin, president of juwi. "We look forward to the successful operation of the Rawhide Flats project and to continued partnerships with clean energy leaders like Platte River and PSEG Solar Source."
The Rawhide Flats facility has been in startup mode for the past week and should shortly begin commercial operations.
In addition to the PSEG Rawhide Flats Solar Center juwi Inc. realize currently two more large solar parks in Colorado.
