First Solar selected by EDF to build two PV projects in California totaling 42.76MW

Cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin-film photovoltaic module maker First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA has been selected as the turnkey engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) contractor for two solar projects under development by EDF Renewable Energy in California.

First Solar and EDF Renewable Energy have signed EPC agreements for the 19.76MWAC CID Solar Project (located in Kings County) and the 23MWAC Cottonwood Solar Project (which consists of two sites: one in Kings County and the other in Kern County). The CID Solar Project has a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). The Cottonwood project has a PPA with Marin Clean Energy.

Both the CID Solar and Cottonwood projects will be built using First Solar’s Series 3 Black Plus PV thin-film solar modules, and will provide enhanced grid reliability and stability using the firm’s PV plant controls.

It is expected that construction on the projects will begin in second-quarter 2014, with CID Solar completing in October and Cottonwood completing in first-quarter 2015.
