First Solar completes sale of 250MW Silver State South project to NextEra

Cadmium telluride (CdTe) thin-film photovoltaic module maker First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA has completed its sale of the 250MWAC Silver State South solar project (announced last November) to a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources LLC (one of the largest wholesale generators of electric power in the USA, and itself a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Inc of Juno Beach, FL, USA).

Located on about 3000 acres of federally managed land in Clark County, Nevada, Silver State South is adjacent to the 50MWAC Silver State North project, which was developed and built by First Solar and commissioned in 2012.

First Solar developed and designed the Silver State South project, and will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to NextEra. Pre-construction activity has begun at the site, and the project is expected to be complete in late 2016. At construction peak, the project will create about 500 local full-time jobs. All the power from Silver State South will be sold to Southern California Edison under a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA).

“Silver State South demonstrates the deep value First Solar provides through our vertically integrated capabilities,” says Tim Rebhorn, First Solar’s senior VP of business development for the Americas. “We have an unmatched ability to offer industry-leading module technology, best-in-class design, and construction that includes single-axis tracker and proven balance of system components,” he adds.

“This is another important milestone as we continue to build our solar business, and we look forward to working with the First Solar team to make this project a reality,” comments NextEra Energy Resources’ senior VP of development Mike O’Sullivan.
