Borrego announced that it has been selected by AES to engineer and construct three utility-scale solar projects in Michigan. The agreement represents Borrego’s first foray into the growing Michigan clean energy market and some of the company’s latest project wins in the utility-scale solar sector.
The three projects — located in Cement City, Pullman and Letts Creek — have mobilized for construction and are scheduled to come online by mid-2022. With a cumulative installed capacity of 72 MWDC, the solar farms will feature bifacial solar modules on single-axis trackers.
Once they are completed, the solar power plants will be owned and operated by AES, with the electricity generated sold to Consumers Energy, under the terms of a long-term PPA.
“The Michigan projects represent the latest success in Borrego’s growth story. Our ongoing working relationship with AES is based on trust and transparency, and is an example of our focus on powering our customers’ growth,” said Brian Barker, general manager of Borrego’s utility-scale EPC division. “We are excited to bring our expertise to Michigan and help the state decarbonize its grid.”
