US developer Sunpin Solar last week said construction of the 98-MW Titan Solar 1 project in California remained on schedule in spite of the complications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Construction of the project, located in Imperial County, Southern California, began in January. The company said that half of the pile installations have been completed and installation of panels has begun. Since April, Sunpin has received delivery of all major equipment including piles, racking and modules.
The project remains on track to start operation in the final quarter of 2020. Once completed, the solar farm will consist of over 260,000 panels that will produce over 218,000 MWh of power yearly, enough to supply more than 26,900 households.
The park’s power will be fed into the grid of the Imperial Irrigation District (IID). It is the second utility-scale solar undertaking by Sunpin Solar within IID’s territory after the completed 96.75-MW ColGreen North Shore solar project in Riverside County.
