First Solar Sells 250MW Nevada Project

The CdTe vertically integrated modules offer tracker technology, EPC services, modules and a balance of system solution


First Solar has completed the sale of the 250-megawatt (MW)AC Silver State South Solar Project to a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Silver State South is located on approximately 3,000 acres of federally managed land in Clark County, Nevada. The project is adjacent to the 50MWAC Silver State North project, which was developed and built by First Solar and commissioned in 2012.

First Solar developed and designed the Silver State South project, and will provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services to NextEra. All the power from Silver State South will be sold to Southern California Edison under a long-term power purchase agreement.

"Silver State South demonstrates the deep value First Solar provides through our vertically integrated capabilities," says Tim Rebhorn, First Solar's Senior Vice President of Business Development for the Americas. "We have an unmatched ability to offer industry-leading module technology, best-in-class design and construction that includes single-axis tracker and proven balance of system components."

"We are pleased to have completed the acquisition of the Silver State South solar project," comments NextEra Energy Resources Senior Vice President of Development Mike O'Sullivan. "This is another important milestone as we continue to build our solar business, and we look forward to working with the First Solar team to make this project a reality."

Pre-construction activity has begun at the site, and the project is expected to be complete in late 2016. At construction peak, the project will create approximately 500 local full-time jobs.

 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
