Swinerton Renewable Energy: April 30, 2013

Here Comes The Sun

The Sacramento Municipality District (SMUD) has been taking advantage of the sun's abundant energy since 1984, when it built the nation's first utility-scale solar array at Rancho Seco, California. Today, the site continues to generate 3.2 megawatts of electricity - enough to power 2,200 single-family homes. Over the years SMUD has continued to pioneer solar efforts in the state, even working with homeowners to put solar panels on their roofs. With the addition of four new photovoltaic sites developed by renewable energy developer Recurrent Energy, SMUD is adding nearly 70 more megawatts of alternating current (AC) to its solar energy portfolio. 

Recurrent Energy contracted Swinerton Renewable Energy as the engineering procurement, construction (EPC) contractor as well as to be responsible for the operations and maintenance of the site for 10 years.
