Horizon Energy Solar PV Park (“HORIZON”) is another solar-power plant developed, constructed, and operated in partnership with Sonnedix Group. Located in Salinas, Puerto Rico on 10 “cuerdas”, it has a capacity of 10-megawatts AC (15.7 MWp) generated by over 167,000 thin-film solar panels grouped in ground-mounted fixed-tilt arrays. Current is converted to AC by Schneider Electric and GPTech inverters. A 5,400 kW Battery Energy Storage System provides compliance with the Utility’s grid-stabilizing Minimum Technical Requirements. It was the first renewable-energy facility in Puerto Rico to do so. With an investment over USD $40 million, the construction of this renewable energy facility created more than 300 direct jobs during construction, mostly residents of Salinas and nearby communities. HORIZON was interconnected to the Utility Grid and started producing clean energy in August 2015. It covers the power demand of more than 2,400 homes, displaces 19,000 tons of carbon-dioxide emissions each year, and generates more than 25,000 megawatt-hours of clean, green electricity each year.
