Sunpin Solar, a California-based solar developer, held a groundbreaking ceremony on January 10, 2020, celebrating the start of construction on its 98-MW Titan Solar 1 Project in Ocotillo Wells, California.
This is Sunpin Solar’s largest utility-scale solar project in California, following the successful completion of the 96.75-MW ColGreen North Shore solar project in Riverside County in 2018.
Located on a 569-acre parcel between the Salton Sea and Anza Borrego Desert State Park, Titan Solar 1 Project will be more than 260,000 panels and will generate over 218,000 MWh of renewable energy each year, which is enough to power over 26,900 homes annually. The project is anticipated to be operational in Q4 2020.
“At Sunpin Solar, we care deeply about our communities and environment. Titan Solar 1 is another project we will work closely with Imperial County and IID (Imperial Irrigation District) on. We are committed to providing our best expertise to build this project and more in the future,” said Tom Li, CEO and president of Sunpin Solar.
Titan Solar 1 Project is interconnected to the Imperial Irrigation District utility grid and will create over 400 green jobs during peak construction.
Following the signing ceremony, Sunpin revealed that it will build a 120-MW solar project in the state with financing partner CNBM.
“I am super excited about this project,” said Alex Cardenas, director of the Imperial Irrigation District. “Sunpin is actually providing the gold standard when it comes to this type of project. As a public utility, it is our job to do our part to make a difference at home and for the greater good.”
