PSEG Solar Source announced it has finished the construction of the PSEG Waldorf Solar Energy Center. The facility is located 22 miles southeast of Washington, DC, and has a capacity of 13.1 MW-dc.

The project was originally developed by juwi, an EPC contractor, and has a 20-year power purchase agreement with Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO).

The completion of this project increases the capacity of PSEG Solar Source’s portfolio to 148 MW-dc, the company said.

“With the completion of the PSEG Waldorf Solar Center, PSEG portfolio now has 11 plants in nine states, said Diana Drysdale, president of PSEG Solar Source.

According to Austin J. Slater, Jr., SMECO’s president and CEO, “By developing a project that provides sustainable energy right here in our service area, PSEG Solar Source is helping us to meet our renewables target for solar production.”

The 80-acre PSEG Waldorf Solar Center uses approximately 42,000, 310-watt photovoltaic solar panels to generate enough solar energy to power more than 3,800 homes.
