Oltmans Construction Co.’s Solar Division was awarded a major contract to provide general contracting and construction services for SunPower Corporation’s Boulder City Solar project. Headed by Tony Perez, Vice President, construction of the 100MW solar project began early December 2015 with a completion date of late Fall 2016. John Silvas, Superintendent, states, “The scope of work involves constructing a 3-mile water line, over 553-acres of site prep and grading, onsite access roads, piles installation, and mechanical installation of the Oasis Ground- Mounted Photovoltaic System as well as complete project management, site and safety supervision. Once it is operational, the project is expected to generate enough electricity to serve the needs of more than 15,000 homes, based on estimates provided by the Solar Energy Industries Association. According to estimates provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the completed plant can be expected to offset nearly 192,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, which is the equivalent of removing more than 740,000 cars from Nevada’s roads over the next 20 years.
