DENVER, CO (August 31, 2021) – Invenergy, a leading privately held global developer and operator of sustainable energy solutions, and Guzman Energy, a Colorado-based wholesale power provider, today announced a 127-megawatt power purchase agreement (PPA) for the Boutique Solar project currently in development in Montezuma County, Colorado. The project will deliver affordable and clean energy aimed at serving power needs for Guzman Energy’s customers.
Developed by Invenergy, the 127-megawatt Boutique Solar project will generate enough electricity to power 25,000 homes.
