Tenaska Solar Ventures LLC (TSV), an affiliate of Omaha, Neb.-based Tenaska, has acquired the Silverleaf solar project from Agile Solar Holdings, an affiliate of Agile Energy LLC, and Bregal Energy, an affiliate of Agile Solar Holdings.
The Silverleaf project is a proposed 160 MW solar energy project under development in Southern California. It would be located on approximately 1,100 acres of agricultural land west of El Centro, Calif., and east of Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center West, a 150 MW solar generating facility also being developed by an affiliate of TSV.
Agile Energy will provide development services to TSV through the completion of project permitting. TSV will assume responsibility for all other development aspects of the project, including securing a power purchase agreement.
Commercial operation targeted for as early as 2015, TSV says.
