So Cal Edison Signs Power Purchase Agreement With First Solar (FSLR) For Silver State South Project

Southern California Edison (SCE) has signed a power purchase agreement with First Solar (FSLR) for 250MW of solar electricity from the FSLR Silver State South project.  The project will consist of 2500 ground mounted solar panels on 2500 acres of public land near Primm, Nevada.  It will interconnect with with SCE’s proposed Eldorado Ivanpah transmission line.  The project is expected to begin producing electricity by 2014 and fully operational by 2017, but still requires approval from the Cali Public Utilities Commission which shouldn’t be a problem.
