Oklahoma Gas & Electric Company, a subsidiary of OGE Energy Corp., and SunPower Corp. announced their intent to build a 10-MW solar facility in Covington, Oklahoma.
Construction is set to begin next month, with SunPower designing and building the facility based on the company’s Oasis system, a complete power plant solution that uses 50 percent fewer parts and an integrated solar tracker design.
"The Covington project is a continuation of our successful pilot initiative, which launched with 2.5-megawatt solar facility in Mustang, Oklahoma, in 2015," said Keith Mitchell, CEO of OG&E.
Commercial operations are set for early 2018.
