Solar Frontier sells 15MW project from US development pipeline

Tokyo-based Solar Frontier – the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules – has sold a 15MW photovoltaic (PV) solar project to Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy. Southern Power is a subsidiary of energy supplier Southern Company and Turner Renewable Energy invests in renewable energy projects in the USA.

Sited in Kern County, California, and part of Solar Frontier's 280MW US solar project development pipeline, the Morelos del Sol project is expected to be built using about 111,744 CIS modules mounted on single-axis trackers.

Project developer Solar Frontier Americas Development LLC, a division of Solar Frontier Americas, consists of a development team with offices in San Francisco, California and Reno, Nevada. They initiated construction on the Morelos del Sol project in July. Commercial operation is expected in late November. The firm currently has nine PV projects in various stages of development.

"This acquisition fits Southern Power's business strategy of growing the wholesale business by acquiring generating assets and building new units in targeted markets," says Southern Power's president & CEO Oscar C. Harper.
