The Urtica Project is a 5MWac photovoltaic power project, currently under development in Ellensburg, WA. Once operational, the project will supply power to Puget Sound Energy under a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement.
Initial development work began in mid-2016 and the project is expected to achieve commercial operation in 2019. The plant will use polycrystalline photovoltaic modules and single axis trackers to generate ~11.5 GWh per year, enough electricity to power ~1,100 homes.
The project is one of five projects being developed by Tuusso Energy in Ellensburg, WA.
