Putah Creek Solar Farm LLC contracted Blue Oak Energy to engineer and construct the nearly 13-acre solar farm. The 8,640 modules are connected to DuraTrack HZ, a widely deployed single-axis solar tracker. These trackers were manufactured and supplied by Array Technologies Inc. (ATI), a leading manufacturer of solar tracking and racking systems. Ron Corio, ATI Founder and CEO, states, “We are thrilled to be working alongside Blue Oak Energy yet again. They are a trusted partner that does exceptional work on each and every solar installation they are involved in.”

The solar farm was permitted through Yolo County and was included in the county’s Climate Action Plan. This action plan includes the reduction of carbon emissions through such measures as renewable energy production. Stephen Smith, the Managing Partner of Solvida Energy Group, explained, “We are proud to have worked with Yolo County, Blue Oak Energy and PG&E to deliver the largest privately owned solar farm in Yolo County, California. This groundbreaking project is a shining example of how cooperation between governments, utilities and the private sector will be critical toward providing energy security and reducing carbon emissions in California and beyond.”
