US: Siemens to work on 20 MW Idaho solar field

The German electronics company received the multi-million dollar order from Interconnect Solar Development, LLC. It will reportedly be the first project of its kind to be integrated within Idaho Power Company’s (IDACORP, Inc.) service territory.

A spokesperson for Siemens told pv magazine that construction on the project will begin this month and it should be grid connected by July 1, 2012.

The company has said it will manufacture the required solar equipment, including inverters, transformers and containers, at its West Chicago plant.

In a statement, it further explained: "The Siemens solar solution will include Siemens Sinvert photovoltaic (PV) inverter technology in a multi-unit cluster design."
