PSEG Solar Source has finished the construction of the 13.1-MW PSEG Waldorf Solar Energy Center, located 22 southeast of Washington, DC.
The project was originally developed by juwi Inc. and has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative. The completion of this project increases the capacity of PSEG Solar Source’s portfolio to 148MW.
“With the completion of the PSEG Waldorf Solar Center, our portfolio now has 11 plants in nine states, each providing customers with safe, clean and reliable energy,” said Diana Drysdale, president of PSEG Solar Source. “It was great to partner with SMECO on a project that will help the electric cooperative achieve its sustainability goals.”
The 80-acre PSEG Waldorf Solar Center uses approximately 42,000, 310-watt photovoltaic solar panels to generate enough solar energy to power more than 3,800 homes. Its pollution-free energy displaces approximately 26,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually – the equivalent of removing approximately 3,300 cars from the road.
juwi is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project and will operate the project for PSEG Solar Source.
