Utility-scale solar company sPower announced Tuesday that its 107MW Solverde 1 solar farm has reached commercial operations.

The installation is located in Lancaster, California, in northern LA County. sPower installed more than 330,000 solar modules with a peak construction crew of over 250 workers. The project was developed under an aggressive schedule, with the project commissioned in just 12 months.

The project stands as sPower’s largest individual operating facility in its portfolio and the largest installation to provide power to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR).

Jim Howell, sPower SVP of commercial power marketing, said: “In recent years, the California State Water Project has steadily decreased its carbon footprint, and we’re proud to be able to support their needs with reliable, affordable clean energy.”
