Duke Energy Renewables has awarded turnkey engineering, procurement and construction services to Swinerton Renewable Energy for the Pumpjack and Wildwood solar power projects, located near Bakersfield, Calif. The projects total 40 MW.

According to Swinerton, Duke has 20-year power purchase agreements in place to sell the electricity from both sites to Southern California Edison. The company adds that design and procurement are already under way, and both projects are expected to achieve commercial operation by year-end.

Pumpjack and Wildwood, Swinerton notes, will each comprise a stand-alone 20 MW photovoltaic facility and new 115 kV substation for interconnection to the grid.
