Platte River Partners with Qcells to Bring Largest Solar Project to Northern Colorado

Published

on

Black Hollow Solar will have capacity for 257MW of power for the utility’s service region.

SEVERANCE, Colo., July 11, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Platte River Power Authority (Platte River) and turnkey solutions partner Qcells USA Corp. (Qcells), broke ground on northern Colorado’s largest solar generation project on July 10.

“Black Hollow Solar represents a major milestone in our journey of working toward our noncarbon energy goals as outlined in the board-approved Resource Diversification Policy,” says Jason Frisbie, Platte River general manager/CEO. “We are proud that Black Hollow Solar, when completed, will bring the total amount of solar capacity in our portfolio to 309 MW, help replace the coal-fired generation we will be shutting down before the end of the decade and is by far the largest solar generation project in northern Colorado.”

The first phase of the project is expected to be complete in May of 2025 and will deliver approximately 367,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of energy annually to Platte River’s owner communities of Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont and Loveland. Phase two of Black Hollow Solar will add an additional 107 MW of capacity in 2026, totaling 257 MW for this project. This is enough to power over 63,000 homes and will increase Platte River’s total solar capacity to 309 MW.

Colorado is a national leader in low-cost, renewable energy and we remain focused on protecting our air quality and environment while saving people money. This project will help us do that by expanding solar capacity in our state and helping Colorado reach our goal of 100% renewable energy by 2040 while strengthening northern Colorado communities like Severance,” said Governor Jared Polis.

Per the agreement with Platte River, Qcells will provide turnkey solutions including project development, engineering, procurement and constructions services and will supply over 540,000 Qcells modules on the Black Hollow Solar project. The electricity generated will be sold to Platte River beginning in May 2025 under a long-term power purchase agreement.

Energy will be delivered to Platte River’s owner communities in Colorado’s north Front Range through a substation currently under construction, adjacent to Platte River’s existing transmission system.

“Qcells is pleased to have been selected by Platte River to develop and construct this exciting project and solidify our commitment to supporting Colorado’s low carbon energy future,” said IP Kim, Qcells president. “We are proud to provide energy solutions that support a partner like Platte River, promoting good stewardship of the community while also realizing the benefits this project brings as a clean source of sustainable energy for the next 25+ years for northern Colorado communities and to the growth of American energy.”

The site is located northeast of Black Hollow Reservoir, near the Town of Severance, CO and the infrastructure will utilize nearly 1,400 acres. Platte River and Qcells engaged with local authorities and stakeholders, including neighbors, state agencies, town councils and county leaders to identify this site. The location was selected after careful review of physical and environmental impacts, land-use constraints and stakeholder feedback.

As Platte River continues to replace coal-fired resources with renewable energy technology, the addition of Black Hollow Solar along with existing renewable resources will increase Platte River’s total noncarbon energy generation on an annual basis to 58% serving almost 75% of the utility’s four owner communities’ energy needs. Platte River is currently evaluating its next round of renewable energy projects including wind and battery storage to continue the pursuit of the utility’s and its owner communities’ noncarbon energy goals.

By

Cordova, Tennessee based Buckeye Power Systems, LLC announced its partnership with Cummins Power Generation and a 7-day inflation fighting 5% discount on the popular Cummins 20kW RS20A air-cooled home standby generator. The discount applies for purchases between July 25th and August 1st, 2024.

CORDOVA, Tenn., July 20, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Cordova, Tennessee based Buckeye Power Systems, LLC announced its participation with Cummins Power Generation and its 7-day 5% discount for homeowners on the popular RS20A 20kW HSB air-cooled home standby generator. The discount also applies to the RS20AC kit which includes a 200-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch. The discount applies for purchases between July 25th and August 1st, 2024.

“The 7-day special discount applies to Cummins 20kW air-cooled home standby generator which is also its most popular model.”

David Richey, president of Buckeye Power Systems, said today, “The 7-day special discount applies to Cummins 20kW air-cooled home standby generator which is also its most popular model. The 20kW generator provides whole house coverage for homes up to 2000 square feet. The same generator also provides managed whole house coverage for homes up to 3000 square feet.”

Richey said the Cummins 20kW includes a built-in load management feature which manages the operation of high-power consumers like air conditioners, kitchen ovens, and clothes dryers. “The load management feature prevents certain loads from operating when the generator is already operating at or near peak performance,” Richey continued. “So, the RS20A offers managed whole house coverage for homes up to 3000 square feet.”

When fueled by natural gas, homeowners enjoy an unlimited supply of fuel from their utility supplier, thus eliminating the need for fuel storage. The same generator can also be fueled by liquid-propane (LP). A 5-year manufacturer’s warranty is standard and extended warranty coverage up to 10 years is available as an option.

In the current inflationary economic environment, the price rollback should be warmly welcomed among homeowners looking for special deals on standby power. The Buckeye Power Systems website currently offers the Cummins RS20A for $5,069 with no sales tax in most states, less the $253.45 discount. The Cummins RS20AC kit includes a 200-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch and is offered for $5995 less a $299.75 discount during the 7-day special promotion.

Buckeye Power Systems is also offering a $500 VISA Gift Card for purchase of the two other Cummins air-cooled home standby generators including the 13kW Cummins RS13A and the 17kW Cummins RS17A.
