AV Solar Ranch One Reaches 100 MW Milestone


First Solar Inc. says its Antelope Valley Solar Ranch One project, which is currently under construction in northern Los Angeles County, Calif., has achieved a peak generating capacity of 100 MW connected to the electrical grid.

The project will have a generating capacity of 230 MW upon completion, which is expected later this year.

Initial construction on the solar project began in September 2011, and module installation started in June 2012, providing an average of 400 jobs during the construction phase. Power from the plant is being purchased by Pacific Gas and Electric Co. under a 25-year contract.
