Work Begins on Utah’s First Utility-Scale Photovoltaic ProjectContributor: Swinerton Blogger | February 09, 2015
Celebrating alongside developer/owner Scatec Solar, fellow project partners, the landowner, and local politicians, Swinerton Renewable Energy (SRE) recently kicked off construction of the 104 MW DC photovoltaic solar facility with a groundbreaking ceremony at Utah Red Hills Renewable Energy Park. Located outside the town of Parowan in Iron County, Utah, SRE will source 80% of the project workforce from the local community, creating both construction and long-term employment opportunities in the region.
SRE is providing turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction services on the project. Once complete in December 2015—SRE will provide real-time data monitoring, plant control, and asset performance optimization through the proprietary SOLV™ SCADA platform and ongoing O&M services. When operational, the plant will be Utah’s largest solar energy generation facility—producing enough energy to power approximately 18,500 homes every year.
