Five Points, Calif., September 29, 2011 — The Energy Alternatives Division of Cupertino Electric, Inc. announced the completion of two ground-mount solar photovoltaic stations totaling 35 MW for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. in Central California.

Construction of the project began in April 2011 and is comprised of two sites: a 20-MW site in Helm and a 15-MW site located in Five Points, California.

The 20-MW Stroud Solar Station and 15-MW Westside Solar Station were designed and built by Cupertino Electric under a five-year PG&E clean energy initiative, which includes up to 250 MW of utility-owned solar generation.

The Stroud and Westside sites represent part of the first 50 MW of PG&E's utility-owned generation. The generation plants are interconnected to the electric grid with the approval of California's Independent System Operator at local PG&E distribution substations.
