While the individual project sizes were not disclosed, the five CPV projects will be located in San Diego County. Furthermore, the option for SDG&E to purchase additional capacity from Soitec exists.
The CPV modules to be used in the project will be manufactured at a new facility, set to also be located in the San Diego area. At nameplate capacity, says Soitec, up to 450 direct and 1,000 indirect jobs will be created. The location of the factory is scheduled to be revealed before year end.
Soitec could not be reached for further comment.
