juwi Sells 50 MW Utah Solar Project To Dominion10 November, 2014
juwi solar (JSI) announced today that it has sold the
ownership interests in a 50 megawatt (MWac) solar energy facility to Dominion (NYSE: D), one of the
nation’s largest producers and transporters of energy headquartered in Richmond, Virginia. The
project was fully developed by JSI and has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with
PacifiCorp. Currently named “Pavant Solar,” the project will be located in Millard County, Utah on
approximately 419 acres of private ranchlands that have been leased to the project.
JSI is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project and will operate the
project for Dominion upon completion. Construction will commence before the end of the year and is
expected to be completed by the second half of 2015. The project will use solar photovoltaic panels
and single-axis tracking technology that enable the panels to track the sun from east to west in order
to maximize efficiency.
“We are pleased to be building our first solar project in the state of Utah,” said Michael Martin, JSI’s
president and chief executive officer. “This transaction demonstrates that large-scale solar facilities
can be financed and built at prices that are in line with the rest of the electricity portfolio in the state.”
Pavant Solar is the fourteenth large-scale solar project to be built by JSI in the United States. JSI has
developed and built other solar projects across the country, including in Arizona, Delaware, Florida,
Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Vermont and Texas.
