Cupertino Electric Inc. has announced the completion of two solar generation projects in Huron, Calif., totaling 30 MW. Construction of the two sites began in late 2012 and finished in May.

The 20 MW and 10 MW solar projects are the fourth and fifth in a series of projects that Cupertino Electric has designed and built for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) since 2011 under the utility’s clean energy initiative. PG&E's 500 MW Solar PV Program currently includes 250 MW of utility-owned solar generation.

“While we are extremely proud of completing these last two large-scale solar projects for PG&E, we are more proud of the strong relationship that we’ve built with the utility that has fueled the success of these projects,” says Cupertino’s Paul Aggarwal. “With each project, we gain invaluable knowledge and insight that we bring to each subsequent endeavor.”
