Swinerton Renewable Energy has completed the 18 MW Westlands Solar Farms project near Huron, Calif. Swinerton built the photovoltaic array and new substation on 85 acres adjacent to Interstate 5 under contract from Clenera.

The Westlands facility includes more than 77,000 JinkoSolar PV modules mounted on Array Technologies DuraTrack HZ single-axis tracking systems. The project includes 18 Advanced Energy AE 1000NX inverters.

The plant is connected by a half-mile-long generation tie and transmission line from the substation into a new 70 kV switchyard. The project is producing and selling power under a power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas and Electric.
