Recently purchased by First Solar, the 60MW North Star solar project will be located near Mendota, Fresno County, California.
The project was developed by Northlight Power, a joint venture company formed by Renewable Energy Corporation and Summit Power Group. Construction is slated to begin in 2014 with completion scheduled for 2015.
When operational, the plant is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 21,000 Californian homes. All output will be sold to Pacific Gas and Electric Company under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
