California: 266 MW PV farm to be finished in early 2014


Construction began on the 266 MW Mount Signal Solar Farm in Imperial County in November. Pre-construction development partner 8minutenergy has now handed over the project for AES Solar to perform the remaining construction and operation works on the US$636 million scheme.

Mount Signal is the first part of the three-phase 800 MW Antelope Valley development and is expected to generate 1,000 construction jobs across the 1,963-acre project.

When complete, it will supply electricity through a 25 year PPA with San Diego Gas and Electric. It is expected to generate enough energy to power around 72,000 households.
