PUEBLO, CO — McCarthy Building Companies is once again teaming up with Lightsource bp to deliver solar power in Pueblo, Colo. The project is the second in Pueblo, with the two projects representing a cumulative total of nearly 600 MW (megawatts) of energy infrastructure to support Colorado’s clean energy future.

Full construction has started with commercial operation expected by late 2022. McCarthy Building Companies was selected by Lightsource bp as the Engineer-Procure-Construct (EPC) contractor for the 293 MWdc solar project located south of Pueblo’s city center. Dubbed Sun Mountain Solar, the project includes installation of nearly 640,000 solar modules on more than 1,700 acres of land, firmly securing its position on the list of largest solar facilities in Colorado to date.

“The Sun Mountain project is just one of many solar sites McCarthy has worked on in Colorado along the Front Range and on the Western Slope,” said Justin Peterson, Vice President of Operations for McCarthy Building Companies’ Colorado office. “Our projects have not only resulted nearly 1,000 MW of clean, renewable energy infrastructure in the state, but also in the creation of hundreds of new jobs and opportunities for local residents to develop lasting careers in the construction industry. We are proud to be a leader in Colorado’s renewable energy future.”
