San Diego Gas & Electric, Soitec to build 30MW portfolio



San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has signed contracts with subsidiaries of Soitec Solar Development to build three solar projects in San Diego County with a combined capacity of 30MW. All three systems will use Soitec Concentrix technology and are currently awaiting approval from the California Public Utilities Commission.

These contracts take SDG&E’s portfolio of solar projects in the past 12 months to 520MW, which more than doubles the solar capacity of the County. Each of the new systems will be fitted with a ground-mounted dual-axis tracking CPV solar power system and Soitec modules, manufactured at the company’s newly-built factory.

“We are extremely pleased to deploy our Concentrix technology for these three solar power plants in San Diego County,” André-Jacques Auberton-Hervé, chief executive officer and chairman of the board at Soitec, said. “Our CPV systems are perfectly suited for projects close to well-populated areas as the high system efficiency of CPV minimizes the amount of land needed for a given amount of electricity production. As a CPV leader, we are committed to the U.S. market and look forward to increasing our presence in the San Diego community with all of our San Diego operations.”
