PCL Construction announced on Monday that it has secured more than USD 1 billion (EUR 944m) in new solar projects, surpassing 4 GW of contracted work so far this year.
The construction group shared a list of eight newly-obtained projects in the US, Canada and Australia with a combined capacity of close to 1.5 GW. More details are available in the table below.
|Peacock||150 MW||San Patricio County, Texas|
|Azalea Springs||180 MW||Angelina County, Texas|
|Clearview||145 MW||Champaign County, Ohio|
|Goose Prairie||80 MW||Yakima County, Washington|
|Spring Coulee||30 MW||Cardston County, Alberta|
|Homestead||400 MW||Claresholm, Alberta|
|Stubbo Solar||400 MW||New South Wales, Australia|
|Gunsynd||94 MW||Queensland, Australia|
PCL Solar has thus achieved a new company record. To date, it has completed almost 60 solar projects across North America and Australia, including the 456-MW Travers Solar power plant in the Canadian province of Alberta.
Now, PCL Solar plans to also engage in Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) projects to cater to the growing demand in the sector driven by the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Canada’s Clean Energy Investment Tax Credit.
“We plan to expand our team by 25% this year to support our projects and increase our capacity for future years,” commented Rodolfo Bitar, manager of strategic initiatives for PCL Solar.
