Signal Energy | September 01, 2021
Signal Energy, an EPC contractor based in Chattanooga, TN, announces the completed construction of the 418 MWp Juno Solar Project in Borden County, TX. The project was delivered on time and is now producing enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of 40,000 homes.
"Building solar projects of this size during a pandemic and the subsequent strains that it created on resources and logistics require a special determination and expertise to deliver a high-quality project safely and on time," said Ryan Johnson, President of Signal Energy. "The Signal team along with our innovative customer, SB Energy, and our great trade partners, did just that."
Signal Energy's mission, We Harness Creative Energy, was exemplified during the entire lifecycle of this project. Perseverance and Stewardship, two of Signal's Core Principles, were clearly demonstrated throughout the construction in a challenging environment and evident to all stakeholders and construction teams at the conclusion of this successful project.
Abhijeet Sathe, Co-CEO of SB Energy, said "We are thankful for our construction partner, Signal Energy, for their creative approach to designing and building the Juno Solar Project, which was completed safely and on schedule. Their perseverance through the pandemic, extreme weather events in Texas, and other obstacles thrown in their way shows their total dedication to safety, quality, and to SB Energy."
