Sunpower and NRG Solar Announce development of 250MW California Valley Solar Ranch
Sunpower and NRG Energy officially announced that they are beginning construction on a 250MW solar installation next year. The facility, named the “California Valley Solar Ranch” should start producing energy by the end of 2011 and will be operating at full capacity by 2013. Check out this article for more information.
We use Sunpower panels in many of our installations, both residential and commercial, because their panels are the highest efficiency and the most light weight available. New Mexico doesn’t have any installations on the same scale as the California Solar Ranch yet but our 3.2 MW installation at the Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center in Albuquerque, NM uses Sunpower panels and will be the largest solar plant in NM when completed.
