PV installer Blue Oak Energy has completed the installation of a 4.2MW PV system in Gridley in the US state of California.
The ground-mounted PV system was developed by LightBeam Energy and is equipped with 17,584 Trina Solar modules mounted on a single-axis tracker which follows the sun throughout the day.
The facility is monitored and scheduled by the California Independent System Operator through a secure remote information gateway.
Electricity generated by the Gridley solar facility will be fed to two members of the Northern California Power Agency —the city of Gridley and the Bay Area Rapid Transit.
Tobin Booth, CEO of Blue Oak Energy, said: “This project will generate power economically for NCPA’s customers every year for the next twenty-plus years. We are thankful for the diligence and efforts from the City of Gridley, the NCPA, Arraycon and LightBeam Energy.”
