DALLAS, TX | PRINCIPAL SOLAR —
Principal Solar has contracted Alpha Energy as its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) partner to build its Principal Sunrise IV project located in Cumberland County.
The project, which begins in May and is expected to be completed by the end of 2015, will be overseen by Ken Allen, chief operating officer, PSI.
“Alpha is a world leader in large-scale construction and solar projects,” says Michael Gorton, CEO, PSI. “Their proven expertise and demonstrated commitment to the success of the project are an important asset as we bring this project on-line.”
The project, with a capacity of 100 MW DC, will be the largest solar facility east of the Rockies. Principal Sunrise IV has a fully executed 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Duke Energy to purchase 100 percent of the power produced.
“We are pleased to be working with PSI, a unique and growing solar company with high-quality projects,” said Drew Zogby, president and CEO of Alpha Technologies Services, Inc. “We look forward to developing this important project to meet demand for solar energy in North Carolina.”
