Siliken Renewable Energy and Pacific Blue Energy have come together to bid a local utility for the development of a 15MW solar farm on 154.3 acres near Flagstaff, Arizona. The site, known as the Sunshine Solar Farm, is located in Coconino County and has the capacity to support 20MW of solar electricity generation from fixed tilt or single axis tracking systems.
“Siliken has been looking to expand its presence in the U.S. and has identified PBEC as the perfect partner to make this happen,” says PBEC CEO Joel Franklin. “We are thrilled to have Siliken join our development team to fulfill our vision for the Sunshine Solar Farm.”
Located 5300 feet above sea level, the Sunshine Solar Farm has cooler, high desert temperatures that help to increase the PV efficiencies of solar panels. For every 5MW, around 25,000 PV panels on racks will be installed.
