MYR Group Inc., a holding company of specialty contractors serving the electric utility infrastructure, commercial and industrial construction markets in the United States and Western Canada, announced that its CSI Electrical Contractors (CSI) signed a contract with a renewable energy developer for a large-scale solar project located in California.
The project consists of 110 MW DC of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy and 280 MWh of battery energy storage system (BESS). The contract is valued at over $ 100 million.
Under the contract, CSI will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services. The project will begin in spring 2022 and pre-construction activities will begin immediately. The end of the project is scheduled for early 2023.
“We are proud to be involved in this vital project which will leverage our extensive EPC and industry experience as we continue to provide utility scale facilities and interconnections,” said Rick Swartz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MYR Group.
“This project builds on the capabilities of CSI’s established renewable energy team and strong portfolio, and further supports our long-term strategy to elevate our position in the renewable space,” Swartz continues. “We look forward to delivering a sustainable project that will help California meet its renewable energy goals and maximize access to clean, reliable energy. “
