PsomasFMG partners with NRG Solar to develop 3.3-megawatt system

When completed, the green project will help power 5 County of Orange facilities.

PsomasFMG, a Huntington Beach-based solar systems provider, has teamed up with NRG Solar to develop a 3.3-megawatt solar project for five Orange County facilities, the first of the firms’ joint portfolio of solar projects that will ultimately total more than 11 megawatts.

The Peace Officer’s Training Facility and County Registrar of Voters are among the facilities in Orange County included in the project. All five county facilities will benefit from renewable energy through ground-mounted and carport applications with the latest green technology. 

“Partnering with NRG Solar will help give us the resources necessary to keep our growth rate strong and demonstrates that the industry understands the effectiveness of our model and our people,” said Lou Kwiker, PsomasFMG CEO.

All facility owners will buy the solar-generated electricity under a power-purchase agreement.

PsomasFMG plans to utilize an EPC contractor to design and manage the entire project, while NRG will provide financial resources in addition to raw materials such as solar panels and power inverters.

NRG Solar has a host of large-scale photovoltaic and solar thermal projects under development or in construction across the Southwest, as well as dozens of distributed solar locations in the Western Hemisphere. The firm installed the largest solar array in Washington, D.C., at FedEx Field, home of the NFL’s Washington Redskins, and has several more football stadium installations under way.

“NRG’s solar-generation portfolio continues to expand in both the large-scale solar and the distributed-generation spaces, so partnering with fast-growing companies such as PsomasFMG makes great sense to us,” said Tom Doyle, NRG Solar president and CEO. “We are excited about the potential of our partnership with PsomasFMG as we advance the development of solar power in California to help meet the state’s ambitious renewable energy goals.”
