Sungrow inverters used in California's 200-MW Wright Solar Project

Sungrow, a global supplier of inverter solutions for renewables, announced that the 200-MW utility-scale Wright Solar project used Sungrow SG2500U-MV turnkey inverters. The project has been operational since early this year in California’s Central Valley, making another milestone for the company’s involvement in the utility-scale segment in the North American solar market. Notably, the project is California’s largest solar installation built exclusively for a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) agency.

The Central Valley is home to many California solar plants due to the ample sunshine and abundant flat land. The plant is expected to power more than 100,000 San Mateo County homes per year utilizing the 1500 Vdc turnkey solution SG2500U-MV.

The solar facility was developed by Clēnera and constructed by Swinerton Renewable Energy with union labor hired from the surrounding areas.

“Our Sungrow inverters continue to provide reliable energy throughout the Clēnera portfolio of operating solar facilities,” said Michael Gallego, Clēnera’s VP of operations. “On time deliveries, speed of commissioning and prompt service have made them a preferred partner for our growing list of assets.”

Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) is the power purchaser of the project.

“This is a huge step for PCE and our customers. The Wright Solar project moves us toward our goal of providing all customers with 100% renewable power by 2025,” said CEO Jan Pepper, in a press release.
