Canadian Solar supplies over Four Megawatts of Modules for the Largest Solar Installation in Shasta County, California.


The two solar installations in Shasta County that make up PSEG Shasta Solar Farm, are the largest in this mountainous county. They stand at over 3,300 feet in elevation between iconic Mount Lassen and Mount Shasta and were completed in 2014. Blue Oak Energy provided turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) services to complete the project and continues to provide operations and maintenance (“O&M”) services.

PSEG Shasta Solar Farm includes approximately 14,952 Canadian Solar CS6X-P modules and powers approximately 725 homes. Combined, its two plants offset nearly 152,598 tons of CO2, which is equivalent to taking nearly 30,000 automobiles off the road.

This is the first West Coast project for PSEG Solar Source, which develops, constructs, owns and operates utility scale solar projects. It also owns the largest solar facilities in Delaware and Ohio, the second largest in Florida as well as projects in Arizona and New Jersey.

“PSEG is pleased to announce this, our 7th utility scale solar project,” said Diana Drysdale, President of PSEG Solar Source. “We continue to work with best-in-class partners like Canadian Solar to invest in projects that provide emissions-free solar energy that help meet solar and renewable targets across the U.S.”
