Pima County, Arizona
Project Capacity: 25 MW
18,151 I-beams supplied by SunSteel
Tucson Solar, 25 MW PV system in Pima County, AZ, is located on a 305 acre site. The facility utilizes solar PV panel technology mounted on horizontal-axis trackers that rotate with the sun's position in the sky in order to optimize electricity production. The system produces over 50,000 MWh of solar power annually, enough energy to power 3,500 homes.
Travis County, Texas
Project Capacity: 30 MW
26,400 I-beams supplied by SunSteel
On 380 acres approximately 15 miles east of outside of Austin, Texas this solar farm contains 127,000 solar panels. The solar farm will deploy 270W photovoltaic (PV) modules and will deliver 30 MW of electricity to Austin Energy, helping reach their 35% renewable energy goal. The $100 million dollar privately owned and operated farm can generate enough electricity to power 5,000 homes.
“We partnered with WTEC/SunSteel from day one as we knew that few players in the industry could meet the demanding schedule and quality standards required to successfully execute one of the largest PV solar fields in North America. SunSteel stepped up to the plate and delivered in support of our 24 hour pile driving operation. As a result we were able to exceed our clients’ expectations, and quickly get ahead and stay ahead of the tracker installation. 27,000 piles of varying lengths, designed, procured, delivered, and installed in less than 3 months – An outstanding job, by an outstanding team! We look forward to our next partnering opportunity…”

Vineland, New Jersey
Project Capacity: 3 MW
3,938 I-beams supplied by SunSteel
The Delsea Road project is located on 38 acres of land in the Vineland, New Jersey community. The 3 MW facility in Cumberland County has 13,000 solar modules used on site to harness the sun’s energy and turn it in to sustainable and green power that can be used in Vineland and surrounding communities. The solar panels produce energy that is part of the electrical grid, providing power during peak hours when demand for electricity is highest.
Project Capacity: 25.2 MW
20,261 I-beams supplied by SunSteel
The PSEG Queen Creek Solar Farm developed by Juwi Solar Inc. is expected to be completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012. The project will be located on 158 acres of land approximately 30 miles southeast of Phoenix Arizona. The Queen Creek Solar Farm will use crystalline panels and a single axis tracking system
Project Capacity: 1 MW
918 I-beams supplied by SunSteel
A solar farm under construction in Memphis at Agricenter International will be among the first in the state to include a solar tracking system. The system will allow the panels to move so that they face the sun all day. This system will greatly improve the efficiency of the 4,160-panel solar array. The 5.5-acre solar array will produce enough electricity to power 400-500 homes at peak demand periods.
