Solar Frontier Americas begin constructions on two Californian PV projects totaling 107MWp

San Jose-based Solar Frontier Americas, the US subsidiary of Tokyo-based Solar Frontier – the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules – says that two utility-scale solar projects from its development pipeline are now in the construction phase in California's Imperial County. Midway I will generate 67MWp and has an executed power purchase agreement (PPA) with Pacific Gas & Electric. Midway II will generate 40MWp and has a PPA with the Imperial Irrigation District.

Managing both projects is Solar Frontier Americas' utility-scale project development division Solar Frontier Americas Development, which consists of a team offering development expertise, substantial financial resources and a network of industry relationships to ensure solar projects are executed on schedule. Blattner Energy is providing engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) services, Power Electronics will supply inverters, and NEXTracker will supply its NX Horizon single-axis trackers for increased energy yields.

"Solar Frontier has developed an extensive US project development pipeline of over 400MW and has rapidly established itself as a reliable and bankable player in the solar development industry," claims Solar Frontier Americas Development's CEO Charles Pimentel. 

"Solar Frontier's solar projects will generate hundreds of direct jobs and employ local workers in Imperial County," comments Ryan Kelley, Imperial County supervisor, District 4.
