Array Technologies commissions 45 MW Sandstone solar PV projec

Sandstone owner and operator, sPower, contracted turnkey solar power solution provider Swinerton Renewable Energy to lead engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) activities for the ground-mounted single-axis tracker photovoltaic installation.

Wells Fargo & Company provided tax-equity financing for the project. Phoenix-based utility Salt River Project is purchasing all of the solar power produced at the 45 MW facility as part of its sustainable portfolio. Sandstone Solar produces enough green power to supply more than 8,000 homes.

Built in about five months, Sandstone Solar is located on nearly 340 acres and features more than 182,000 JinkoSolar PV modules mounted on ATI’s DuraTrack HZ v3 trackers.

“ATI’s tracker technology is an important contributor to the success of the Sandstone Solar facility,” said Ryan Creamer, sPower CEO.

“The DuraTrack system allows the panels to more efficiently capture energy as the sun tracks across the Arizona sky, which benefits SRP’s rate payers.”
