Guzman Energy has received approval from Delta County Board of Commissioners to install and operate the Garnet Mesa Solar project in Southern Delta County, Colorado.
Garnet Mesa Solar will produce more than 194,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity each year, enough energy for 18,000 homes. Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) will directly purchase a portion of the energy produced by the solar farm and Guzman Energy will offtake the rest as power supply to serve additional wholesale customers.
The Garnet Mesa Solar project team will now focus on the next phases of engineering and procurement planning. Construction resource and timing details will be announced following those engineering and procurement planning cycles.
