Atlanta-based Southern Co. has acquired the 30 MW Spectrum solar project, which will be located in Clark County, Nev. According to this company, the project is the largest direct-current solar tracking array of its kind.
The plant is located on a 311-acre site and will be built, operated and maintained by SunEdison.
Construction of the Spectrum project is expected to begin in October, and commercial operation is anticipated by the second quarter of 2013. The plant's output will serve a 25-year power-purchase agreement with NV Energy.
