Cypress Creek EPC, the construction arm of American solar developer Cypress Creek Renewables, has reached a major construction milestone of 1GW of solar developed over the last 18 months.
In 2017 alone, Cypress Creek built 800MW of solar infrastructure in North Carolina, South Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, and Vermont.
Cypress Creek Renewables’ 1GW of solar energy helped create more than 9,000 local jobs during construction.
Cypress Creek CEO Matt McGovern said: “Solar is a major driver of growth in US infrastructure and employment. Cypress Creek Renewables is proud of our accomplishments and what we have built in partnership with landowners, communities, American manufacturers, investors, and utilities throughout the country.”
Peter Farlekas, president of Cypress’ engineering, procurement and construction, added: “I’d like to thank our customers, vendors, and Cypress Creek’s EPC team for helping us reach this tremendous milestone. Our company heads into 2018 prepared to build on our successful year.”
