Solar FlexRack, a division of Northern States Metals and PV mounting and solar tracker solutions company, has completed a contract to supply a 26.4MW solar installation for Swinerton Renewable Energy. 

Swinerton will serve as the project's engineering, procurement, and construction company. The Tobacco Valley solar project, located in Simsbury, Connecticut, will be installed with Solar FlexRack's Series G3-X fixed tilt solution, which is known for its performance in challenging climates.

George Hershman, general manager, Swinerton Renewable Energy, said: “Swinerton Renewable Energy is dedicated to building solar projects that provide maximum value for our clients, our partners and the community, and our suppliers are instrumental in meeting this goal. We're pleased to have a proven partner like Solar FlexRack on this project.”

Steve Daniel, executive vice president of Solar FlexRack, added: “Swinerton Renewable Energy is an employee-owned organization which maintains a high standard for the work they complete, their employees and commitment to the communities in which they work. They build responsibly and that philosophy is driven throughout their organization.”

Construction is already underway, with the Tobacco Valley solar project scheduled for completion in 2019. In total, the project is expected to generate enough energy to power 6,800 homes and create over 300 construction jobs.
