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 67 MWp and has an executed power purchase agreement (PPA) with Pacific Gas & Electric.
Midway II, also located in Imperial County, is 40 MWp and has a PPA with the Imperial Irrigation District.
Solar Frontier Americas Development, the utility-scale project development division of Solar Frontier Americas, is managing both projects.
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 400 MW and has rapidly established itself as a reliable and bankable player in the solar development industry.”
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.”
