December 16 (Renewables Now) - Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives Inc (NASDAQ:IEA) said today that one of its units has been awarded a USD-44-million (EUR 39m) contract to lead the construction of a 60-MW wind farm in California.
IEA’s wholly-owned subsidiary White Construction will be in charge of building a 15-turbine facility in Riverside County. It will self-perform all engineering and construction of the turbines, two substation and meteorological evaluation towers (METs) and an underground electrical collector system.
