JinkoSolar agrees to deliver over 340,000 pieces of high-efficiency polycrystalline 72-cell panels, totaling 104MWdc, to the Utah Red Hills Renewable Park project though a contract with Swinerton Renewable Energy. Scatec Solar, the project's developer and a long-term owner, hired Swinerton Renewable Energy to construct the plant and procure the appropriate technologies.
The Utah Red Hills Renewable Park, set to be built on a site with excellent solar irradiation, is the first utility-scale PV power plant in the state. It will generate around 210 million kWh of electricity per year, which will be fed into the grid under a twenty-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with PacifiCorp's Rocky Mountain Power, according to the utility's obligation under the federal Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act.
"Swinerton is excited to continue our successful partnership with JinkoSolar and to bring jobs and years of clean power to the Parowan residents. Utah Red Hills Renewable Park is a great project for the city of Parowan and we couldn't be more eager to work with this team," commented Mr. George Hershman, Vice President and Division Manager of Swinerton Renewable Energy.
