The Westlands Solar Farms site is now operational and employs more than 77,000 solar modules mounted on Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ single-axis tracking technology. The 18-MW solar project was constructed by Swinerton Renewable Energy, a world-class turnkey solutions provider. The power produced by Westlands Solar Farms will be sold to Pacific Gas & Electric under an established Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
Located on 85 acres of land near Interstate 5 in Fresno County, the installation is expected to generate more than 42,000 MWh per year which is enough power to supply about 4,000 average California homes with clean, renewable energy.
The DuraTrack HZ was chosen for the Westlands Solar Farm based on its unparalleled installation rates which are second to none in the solar tracking industry. By utilizing Array Technologies’ advanced DuraTrack HZ product design, pre-site component kitting and best practices training, Swinerton’s team was able to install more than 1.5 MW per day (~5,000 modules) during peak construction.
