Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) (BW) announced that its B&W Renewable segment has been awarded contracts totaling more than $20 million by Summit Ridge Energy (SRE) to provide engineering, procurement, and construction services for seven community solar projects in Illinois.

When complete, the seven photovoltaic solar farms will provide approximately 20 megawatts of power for homes and business in Northern and Central Illinois.

"SRE is proud to continue its legacy shaping Illinois as a leading clean energy market and happy to partner with B&W to make it happen," said Summit Ridge Energy Chief Executive Officer Steve Raeder. "Americans across the country are looking for reliable, resilient and clean energy to power their lives. It is critical that the industry continue to answer this demand and find new ways to ensure all Americans are able to take part in the energy transition."

Engineering for the projects is currently underway and completion of the projects are scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.
