First Solar signs 550 MW of PPAs with SCE


Thin film manufacturer and developer, First Solar has signed new PPA agreements totaling 550 MW with SCE, thus bringing the total amount of solar PV under contract with the utility to 2.2 GW.

The four projects in questions are: The 150 MWac North Rosamond Solar Project in California; the 100 MWac Willow Springs Solar Project, also in California; the 100 MWac Sunshine Valley Solar Project in Nevada; and the 150 MWac Sun Streams Solar Project in Arizona. All are scheduled for commissioning by the end of 2019.

"This is an exciting milestone to reach in a valued long-term relationship," said Brian Kunz, First Solar's Vice President of Project Development – US West. "As an early off-taker, SCE was visionary in their inclusion of utility-scale solar in their energy mix. Their commitment to providing rate-payers with clean, affordable renewable energy continues with this set of agreements."
