August 6, 2013

Landmark photovoltaic demonstration/deployment project designed to speed American solar to renewable energy market

MORGAN HILL, Calif.-- PPA Partners is collaborating with the Center for Solar Energy and Texas A&M University-Central Texas (TAMUCT) in Killeen, Tex. on a landmark solar energy project designed to speed new renewable energy technologies to market, announced Mark Weiss, president, PPA Partners. The centerpiece of the multi-faceted program is a 50+ MW deployment of solar photovoltaic technologies representing all major product classes.

“Our expertise in the solar space makes us ideally suited to develop the 100 technology, 50+ MW demonstration field at the Killeen campus of TAMUCT,” Weiss noted, “having already successfully developed the only utility-scale 5 MW multi-technology test site in the world at Arizona Western College in Southwest Arizona. The lessons we learned developing the Arizona site and working with the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) on comparison methodologies positioned us perfectly to develop this game changing comparison site.”

PPA Partners will be responsible for complete development of the Texas A&M-Central Texas site. The firm will work with the Center for Solar Energy and its advisory board to determine the best photovoltaic technology choices, balance of system, layouts, contractors and all support services. The $6 million center will serve as an incubator to bring emerging technologies to the marketplace and ultimately house a renewable power generation system that will provide power to the TAMUCT campus.
