First Solar To Develop 139 MW Solar Project In California


First Solar Inc. has announced that it is developing the 139 MW Campo Verde Solar Project, which will be located near El Centro in Imperial County, Calif.

The Campo Verde project is expected to start construction in the third quarter and be completed in 2013. San Diego Gas & Electric Co. will purchase the project's output under a 20-year power purchase agreement, which was approved in May by the California Public Utilities Commission.

The Campo Verde project is jointly owned by First Solar and US Solar Holdings LLC, but First Solar has the contractual rights to acquire a 100% ownership interest and is in the process of completing its acquisition.
