OKLAHOMA CITY – Moss Solar, a division of Moss & Associates, has been selected by SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR) to construct the 10-megawatt (AC) Covington Solar solar photovoltaic power plant in Covington, Oklahoma. Construction on the project starts this month. It is Moss Solar’s first project in the state.
At the site, Moss will install the SunPower® Oasis® Power Plant platform with SunPower P-Series solar panels. Moss is currently completing construction on the 57-megawatt Gala Solar Plant in Oregon, which also utilizes SunPower Oasis Power Plant technology.
“We are excited to have another opportunity to work with SunPower installing its revolutionary Oasis Power Plant tracker system,” said Moss’ Executive Vice President Mike Little. “This system dramatically simplifies the engineering and construction of solar plants. SunPower has optimized every component of the power plant, reducing not only the component costs, but also construction installation costs.”
Covington Solar is anticipated to generate enough electricity to serve the needs of more than 1,000 average homes, based on estimates provided by the Solar Energy Industries Association. The plant will serve the customers of OGE Energy Corp.’s electric utility subsidiary Oklahoma Gas & Electric Company.
This is Moss Solar’s 17th project with SunPower. Moss has been involved in over 1,680 MW of solar projects across North America.
