RPCS Helps Pine Gate Renewables and NARENCO complete 57-MW Solar Project in South Carolina

Peony is a 57-MW site spanning 334 acres. It can generate more than 97,400 MWh per year, equivalent to powering over 9,300 homes.

RP Construction Services (RPCS) is celebrating the success of Pine Gate Renewables and NARENCO on their recent project completion.

Pine Gate Renewables, a national utility-scale solar developer, owner, and operator, energized its Peony solar project in Orangeburg County, South Carolina, last week.

Peony is a 57-MW site spanning 334 acres. It can generate more than 97,400 MWh per year, equivalent to powering over 9,300 homes.

Project partner NARENCO, a leading engineering, procurement, construction, and development firm (EPC), helped install the 175,000 tracker panels on the site. The site features DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers by Array Technologies, mechanically installed by RPCS, Array's trusted partner. The trackers keep the modules following the sun on its course throughout the day, ensuring up to a 20 to 25% increase in energy production over fixed-tilt systems.

"The efforts of all parties allowed us to deliver a high-quality project that will generate decades of clean power to South Carolina," says Andy Giraldo, president of EPC at NARENCO.

"It was a real pleasure supporting NARENCO on this project," says RPCS Chief Sales Officer Alex Smith. "Peony was a very well executed project and all the great planning, communication, and collaboration with NARENCO leading up to the build came together to ensure a smooth installation."

RPCS's latest milestone is completing over 550MW for over 260 solar energy projects throughout 27 different U.S. states and Canada. Voted a 2018 Top Solar Contractor, the company was recently also named Top 10 Renewable Energy Services Company by Energy CIO Insights.

"We are very proud of the outcome and thankful for the contributions from the teams at PGR and NARENCO," says Chris Dunbar, CCO at Pine Gate Renewables. "We anticipate this project being a model for our future efforts in South Carolina."
