Guzman Energy signs PPA on Primergy Solar’s 155-MW Colorado PV project
Guzman Energy has signed a power purchase agreement with Primergy Solar about the proposed 155 MWac Hesperus Solar Project. Located in La Plata County on Colorado’s western slope, Hesperus could provide the energy needs of nearly 56,000 homes annually.
“This agreement is an important milestone in our plans to expand our energy supply to meet customer demand for reliable, affordable, clean energy on the western slope of Colorado and in New Mexico,” said Chris Riley, CEO of Guzman Energy. “We will continue to mobilize projects that provide cheaper, better energy for our customers and their communities.”
Located on 1,500 hectares, Hesperus will create more than 350 construction and permanent jobs, as well as other economic development benefits such as tax revenues, educational opportunities and local investment. The project is expected to be operational by the end of 2023.
“We are proud to play a role in this innovative approach to bring solar energy to Coloradoans who want cleaner air, water and soil,” said Ty Daul, CEO of Primergy. “Primergy believes carefully located solar farms will provide a brighter future and produce healthier economies throughout Mountain West.”
