Energy provider Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, has earned a controlling interest in the 300MW Desert Stateline Facility from PV system provider First Solar.

Standing as the fourth shared acquisition between both companies, the Desert Stateline Facility is located on 681 hectares of federally managed public land in San Bernardino County and will consist of  3.2 million First Solar thin-film modules mounted on fixed-tilt modules.

Once developed, the installation is expected to generate enough energy to meet the energy demands of around 100,000 homes. Construction on the site begin in October 2014, with the project set to be completed and operational by the third quarter of 2016.
