PSEG Solar Source completed its Essex Solar Energy Centre just outside Burlington, Vermont that houses approximately 12,000 fixed-tilted, solar photovoltaic panels with 3.6MW of generating capacity.
Juwi Solar Inc. (JSI) served as the projects engineering, procurement, and construction contractor and will also operate the facility. The solar farm has a 25-year power purchase agreement with Vermont Electric Power Producers (VEPP) as part of the Vermont Sustainably Priced Energy Enterprise Development (SPEED) program.
"PSEG is pleased to announce this latest addition to our utility scale solar fleet and are working diligently to continue to grow the business with great partners like JSI," said Diana Drysdale, president of PSEG Solar Source.
The Essex solar farm counts as PSEG’s ninth solar installation, all which are spread out across those sunny US states. A tenth project is under construction in Texas and once completed, PSEG Solar Source's portfolio will be 110MW.
