Additional co-op participants in the Solar Utility Network Deployment Acceleration (SUNDA) Project have now begun deployment. On Earth Day (April 22), CoServ announced its 2MW solar PV system, which is under construction in northern Denton County, Texas. Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative announced that ‘ballasts have been poured, racking structures are being installed, and panels are on their way’ for their 600kW solar PV system on-site at Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey. Joining Great River Energy – which successfully installed and commissioned three solar PV systems at their headquarters in June 2014, these efforts serve as examples of how the SUNDA project is helping to facilitate utility-scale (250kW, 500kW, 1MW or larger) photovoltaic systems.
