Yingli Green Energy Holding Co., which markets its products under the brand Yingli Solar, supplied 25 MW of solar PV modules to Arizona’s Queen Creek Solar Farm.
The project is owned by PSEG Solar Source, and was developed and built by Colorado-based engineering, procurement and construction contractor, juwi solar Inc.
All electricity produced by the Queen Creek Solar Farm is being purchased by the Salt River Project, the nation’s third-largest investor-owned utility, through a 20-year power purchase agreement.
The installation used over 90,000 Yingli 72 Cell Solar modules affixed and operating on a single axis solar tracking system to maximize performance, and will generate enough electricity to power about 3,300 homes in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.
The Queen Creek Solar Farm is one of several large-scale solar projects situated in desert locations that use Yingli Solar modules, which have a track record of success in arid conditions.
