Keystone is a 6 MW ground-mounted solar farm, managed by
Bright Plain Renewable Energy, LLC, developed by
Community Energy Solar, and built by

"Community Energy is proud of this honor and recognition for the Keystone Solar Project," said
Brent Beerley, executive vice president at Community Energy. "As the lead project developer, we selected AE Solar Energy based on the company's reputation as a trustworthy and collaborative partner with reliable and proven solar inverter technology. The company delivered on its reputation, and was a key contributor in making this ground-breaking project a success."
As the EPC of the project, groSolar completed the installation on a tight timetable — with construction to operation taking less than three months. groSolar's ability to meet this aggressive schedule was in part due to AE Solar Energy's on-time product delivery and unsurpassed customer service.
"We continue to be impressed with AE Solar Energy's technology and customer support team," said
Frank Griffin, groSolar's executive vice president of construction and engineering. "Design modifications and an aggressive construction schedule posed challenges to bring this 6 MW project to commercial operation on a timely basis. AE Solar Energy was a flexible and responsive partner during the entire process."
The AE 500NX-HE is a highly efficient solar inverter specifically designed to meet the requirements of large commercial and utility-scale solar power plants with the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE). With the best in power-class 98 percent California Energy Commission (CEC) efficiency rating, AE Solar Energy's AE 500NX-HE generates more power and value for project developers, owners and financiers.
