Quanta nails utility-scale PV project with 176,000 solar modules

Quanta Power Generation Inc. received an engineering, procurement and construction contract from Con Edison Development for two of its photovoltaic (PV) facilities that will be built in Kings and Tulare counties, California. 

Although it’s being knocked around by charges of panel dumping by Pacific Rim PV panel manufacturers and is still unable to support itself without government tax breaks and other local financial incentives, the solar industry is still seeing good growth in utility-scale projects like the one announced today by Quanta Services Inc., Houston.

The company’s subsidiary, Quanta Power Generation Inc., received an engineering, procurement and construction contract from Con Edison Development for two of its photovoltaic (PV) facilities that will be built in Kings and Tulare counties, California, and eventually have a total capacity of 40 megawatts. Quanta Services will handle the design, engineering, procurement and installation services for all equipment required for projects. About 176,000 polycrystalline PV solar modules will be mounted to a single-axis tracking system for both the facilities, which will cover more than 350 acres. Details
