Clean energy development and financing company Empower Energies announced Tuesday that it has completed the Patua solar power project – a 14.5MW PV project in Churchill County, Nevada.
The project will provide power for an existing geothermal power plant owned by CYRQ Energy – a Salt Lake City based renewable energy company.
Empower advised CYRQ on the development and design of the Patua solar project – which is comprised of approximately 45,360 PV solar panels. Empower also advised CYRQ for the construction and commissioning of the project.
As construction manager, Empower's development and operations team assisted CYRQ with fine-tuning the design of the project, overseeing supply chain management issues, and managing the project construction schedule. The project was completed at the end of July 2017.
Nick Goodman, CEO of CYRQ Energy, said: “We were very impressed with the expertise and support we received from Empower Energies in working with our team on the design and completion of this critical project. We look forward to continuing to work with Empower on other solar projects to support our geothermal activities in the US.”
John Clapp, president and CFO of Empower Energies, added: “The Patua project is a prime example of the strength of Empower's flexible business model in the clean energy industry. We are able to deploy our development and operations teams to deliver high quality solar and related clean energy projects throughout the US for customers whether they intend to own the project themselves, like CYRQ Energy, or seek third-party financing through our DG Fund.”
A previous version of this story stated that the Patua project was in Utah.
