Tessera Solar has been selected by Riverside County, Calif., to develop solar energy projects on county-owned land at closed landfills and on undeveloped land adjacent to county airports.
Optiflex Properties & Development LLC, a real estate and technology development company, is partnering with Tessera Solar to co-develop and co-finance the projects. Tessera Solar will develop as much as 500 MW of solar power on county of Riverside land. The company is currently analyzing the parcels of available land to determine the best location for the projects.
The solar projects will utilize the SunCatcher power system manufactured by Tessera Solar's sister company, Stirling Energy Systems, headquartered in Scottsdale, Ariz. The selection results from the county's request for proposals issued earlier this spring.
