More good news for First Solar (FSLR) tonight.  In addition to posting strong guidance for next year, the company is announcing that NRG Energy (NRG) will purchase its 290MW Agua Caliente project in Yuma, Arizona.  The project when completed in 2014 is expected to be the largest operating solar farm in the world and provide clean electricity to nearly 225,00 homes.  It should be noted though while all permits have been received and early construction phases have begun, the acquisition is contingent upon receiving a federal loan guarantee for the project.
