Construction wrapped up at McCarthy Building Arrow Canyon Solar

On the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Moapa, Nevada, McCarthy Building Companies completed the installation of the last solar module for the Arrow Canyon Solar project. It is a 274 MWDC solar and 91 MW, 455 MWh DC-coupled storage facility. McCarthy was hired by EDF Renewables as the project’s EPC to build the 1,387-acre facility, and electrical trade partner Bombard Electric just finished installing the last of the 621,093 bifacial.

Additionally, there are 7,139 NEXTracker NX Horizon trackers in the project. At the height of the building and module installation, there were about 450 team members, including 46 tribal people, working on the project. When Arrow Canyon is completely operational in December 2022, it will produce enough clean energy to power up to 76,000 typical Nevada households.

Commentary on the Arrow Canyon Solar project

“Seeing module number 621,093 installed is a very exciting milestone. Constructing this size of a project takes strong partnerships that share common values of safety, quality, and teamwork. We appreciate McCarthy and Bombard for their well-coordinated efforts, in achieving such a key milestone,” said John Bastarous, VP of construction at EDF Renewables.

“McCarthy and our electrical trade partner, Bombard Electric, are proud of the outstanding teamwork and collaboration with our partners that helped successfully reach this installation milestone. After installing approximately 38.8 million pounds worth of modules, this milestone is worth celebrating with EDF Renewables and the Moapa Paiutes in the effort towards expanding their sustainable solar infrastructure and energy storage in Southern Nevada,” said Chris Fletcher, project director at McCarthy.

McCarthy Building Companies has also contracted with Leeward Renewable Energy (LRE) as the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) Contractor for a utility-scale solar farm in Pearsall, Texas, located approximately an hour southwest of San Antonio. McCarthy is responsible for the design, procurement, construction, and commissioning of the 200-megawatt (MWac) facility.
