The California Valley Solar Ranch will be a 250MW facility built in San Luis Obispo County, north of Los Angeles. Bechtel is providing engineering, procurement, and construction services for the project.
"Upon completion, the California Valley Solar Ranch will produce clean, renewable energy to meet the power needs of approximately 100,000 homes,” said president of Bechtel’s Renewable Power division Ian Copeland. “Equally important, it will be built with minimal impact to the land and habitat. We are honored that SunPower Corporation selected Bechtel to deliver this world-class, large-scale solar facility that will advance the renewable energy industry."
Bechtel began working on the site in August under a limited notice to proceed agreement. Construction is scheduled to take approximately two years.
