Diana Drysdale, president of PSEG Solar Source, said: “We are pleased to partner with Obsidian Renewables and Swinerton Builders on this project which expands our solar footprint to include Oregon where we will deliver enough clean, reliable energy to power about 2,000 Oregon homes. This acquisition is another example of PSEG's Solar Source's commitment to growing our renewable energy business.”
Swinerton Builders served as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor and will operate the project for PSEG Solar Source once it is completed. Construction has already started on the project, with commercial operations expected for late 2016. The project will be comprised of 32,000 SolarWorld mono-crystalline panels with SMA inverters.
