Solar Frontier’s 15MW PV solar project in the California, USA has been sold to Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy. The project “Morelos del Sol” is part of Solar Frontier’s 280MW US solar project development pipeline.
The Morelos del Sol project is located in Kern County, California. Being developed by Solar Frontier Americas Development LLC, the project is expected to comprise approximately 111,744 CIS modules mounted on single-axis trackers. The Solar Frontier branch officers initiated construction on the Morelos del Sol project in July and commercial operation is expected in late November. The company currently has nine PV projects in various stages of development.
“As a national leader in renewables, this acquisition fits Southern Power’s business strategy of growing the wholesale business by acquiring generating assets and building new units in targeted markets,” said Southern Power President and CEO, Oscar C. Harper.
Solar Frontier Americas Development LLC develops PV projects installed with Solar Frontier’s advanced CIS technology, a solar module that generates higher energy yields in real-world environments than conventional crystalline silicon technologies.
