Solar FlexRack is installing a fixed-tilt solar racking system at a 105 MW solar power generation plant in North Carolina. Cypress Creek Renewables developed the project and is providing the engineering, procurement and construction services as well as the ongoing operations and maintenance services. The project is owned by Cubico Sustainable Investments, a leader and global investor in renewable energy, backed by two of Canada’s largest pension funds.
The solar farm, located in Pender County, is one of Solar FlexRack’s largest projects to date. This high-quality solar project will be installed with more than 7,000 Solar FlexRack Series G3L-X racks, one of the best field-assembled, ground-mount solutions available for utility-scale and commercial solar projects. The solar modules being installed are First Solar’s Series 4 thin-film, recognized for their high energy yield and durability.
“Solar FlexRack has proven to be a valuable partner for the Pender County solar project,” said Kevin Donegan, Senior Vice President for Engineering, Procurement and Construction, Cypress Creek Renewables. “The company’s technical expertise in working with both crystalline and thin-film products is an important component of this project’s success.”
Covering 675 acres, the solar farm is projected to begin producing power by the end of the year.
“Cypress Creek is a reliable and experienced developer with an impressive track record of building quality solar power projects that help lower electricity costs, drive additional revenue streams for landowners, and generate tax dollars that benefit the local communities,” said Steve Daniel, Executive Vice President of Solar FlexRack. “We’re proud to be part of this valuable project.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
