Obsidian Renewables, LLC developed the Outback Solar facility. The Outback project was among the first utility scale solar in Oregon. Developed utilizing a strategic collaboration with Smart Energy Capital, Outback Solar is a 5 MW solar photovoltaic facility that uses single-axis tracking to generate approximately 10 million kWh of energy annually. The project is located on 50 acres east of the town of Christmas Valley, Oregon. Portland General Electric is buying the energy produced by the facility. Due to the remote location of the facility, provision of skilled labor to construct the facility presented a challenge, but 80% of the labor was from within the state.
