Having completed five projects totalling 22MW for PNM Resources in New Mexico in 2011, First Solar has been awarded a new engineering, procurement and construction services (EPC) contract with the utility for an additional four solar power plants totalling 20MW (AC).
The thin film manufacturer's CdTe modules will be used in the projects, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2013, subject to permitting.
The four PV projects are expected to create around 450 temporary construction jobs and generate enough energy to power up to 7,000 average New Mexico homes.
