The Energy Alternatives Division of Cupertino Electric, Inc. has installed the last of more than one million modules at Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and Consolidated Edison Development’s 250-MW AC Copper Mountain Solar 3 project in Boulder City, Nevada. Working alongside international engineering and project management company Amec Foster Wheeler, Cupertino Electric has completed installation of more than one million photovoltaic (PV) solar modules on the 1,400-acre, fixed tilt, ground-mount project that broke ground in early 2013.
“This is a significant project in the solar market,” said Tom Dodson, vice president, construction for Amec Foster Wheeler. “We are delighted to have partnered with Cupertino Electric to leverage our global design, engineering and project management expertise to jointly deliver this prominent project to Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and Consolidated Edison Development.”
“Having worked with Sempra U.S. Gas & Power previously on its jointly owned Copper Mountain 2 Solar project as an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) subcontractor, we were pleased to continue our successful run on this latest project,” said John Curcio, chief commercial officer for Cupertino Electric. “As our portfolio of utility-scale solar projects we have worked on has grown exponentially in the last few years, so has our ability to innovate and safely deliver the highest-quality solar projects across the U.S. on schedule for the best value. We are proud to work with Sempra U.S. Gas & Power, Consolidated Edison Development and Amec Foster Wheeler on what we believe will prove to be the gold standard for solar project design and construction.”
