Solar Frontier Americas announced two utility-scale solar projects from its development pipeline are now in the construction phase. Located in California's Imperial County, Midway I is 67MW and has an executed power purchase agreement (PPA) with Pacific Gas & Electric. Midway II, also located in Imperial County, is 40MW and has a PPA with the Imperial Irrigation District.
Managing both projects is Solar Frontier Americas Development. Blattner Energy is providing EPC services, Power Electronics will supply inverters and NEXTracker will supply its NX Horizon™ single-axis trackers for increased energy yields.
Charles Pimentel, CEO of Solar Frontier Americas Development, said, "Solar Frontier has developed an extensive U.S. project development pipeline of over 400MW and has rapidly established itself as a reliable and bankable player in the solar development industry. We are pleased to now start construction of Midway I and Midway II, two solar power plants that will deliver economical, clean and renewable energy."
Ryan Kelley, Imperial County Supervisor, District 4, said, "Solar Frontier's solar projects will generate hundreds of direct jobs and employ local workers in Imperial County, California. The projects will drive significant dollars in local sales and property taxes and contribute to the local economy."
