Guzman Energy Hesperus

Guzman Energy, the wholesale power provider announced this Tuesday it has signed a power purchase agreement with Primergy Solar. The PPA includes the purchase by Guzman from the proposed 155 megawatts-ac Hesperus Solar project.

Firstly, the Hesperus Solar project will locate in La Plata County, on Colorado’s western slope. It will have the ability to serve the energy needs of nearly 56,000 homes annually.

Secondly, sited on a huge area of 1,500 acres, Hesperus Solar will create more than 350 construction and permanent jobs; as well as other economic benefits for the region, such as tex revenues, educational opportunities, and local investment.

Thirdly, although the amount of energy that Guzman Energy will purchase from Hesperus was not disclosed. The announcement makes clear that the PPA is the largest of solar power purchase of the state, by a non-utility customer.

Moreover, the project is expected to be operational by the end of 2023.

Finally, this is not the only interest that Guzman energy has on the state, and regarding solar energy. Back in early May, the company announces it started operations of an 80MW solar energy project approximately 3.5 miles of Delta, Colorado. Accordingly, this project will produce over 194,000 MWh of electricity a year. In fact, this energy capacity is enough to supply energy to 18,000 homes.
