“This is a significant project in the solar market. We are delighted to have partnered with Cupertino Electric to leverage our global design, engineering and project management expertise to jointly deliver this prominent project to Sempra U.S. Gas & Power and Consolidated Edison Development.”

John Curcio, chief commercial officer for Cupertino Electric said:

“Having worked with Sempra U.S. Gas & Power previously on its jointly-owned Copper Mountain 2 Solar project as an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) subcontractor, we were pleased to continue our successful run on this latest project.”
