Emerson wins contract at Californian photovoltaic facility

Emerson has been awarded a contract to supply power inverters and plant-wide controls for a Californian photovoltaic power-generation facility.

Quanta Services has awarded the contract to Emerson for the zero-emission solar projects in Kings County, California. Quanta will provide the engineering, procurement and construction services for the facilities.

The projects were developed by Eurus Energy America and are owned jointly by Eurus and NRG Solar, a subsidiary of NRG Energy.

Once completed in mid-2011, the facility will generate 45MW of renewable energy, which is enough to power 36,000 homes when operating at full capacity.
