French renewable energy company Neoen plans to build the largest utility-scale solar park in the US state of Washington with an installed capacity of 20 MW, the Tri-City Herald said Monday.
The company has already commenced geotechnical studies for the plant, which will be situated on land that was formerly part of the Hanford nuclear reservation near Richland. The exact location has not been selected yet and will be picked in accordance with results of the inspection.
The site is owned by the Tri-City Development Council.
Neoen will use the consulting and marketing services of Energy Northwest for the project, which is expected to be completed in 2019.
