The project is part of Solar Frontier’s 106MW Midway projects portfolio. It is located in the Imperial County of California, and is comprised of around 242,000 advanced CIS Solar Frontier thin-film PV modules and NEXTracker single-axis trackers. Midway II is expected to generate enough clean electricity to power more than 6,500 homes annually.

The project is under a 25-year PPA with the Imperial Irrigation District – one of the largest public power utilities serving California’s Imperial Valley.

“We’re pleased Dominion is expanding its assets with a solar project developed by Solar Frontier Americas,” said Charles Pimetel, COO of Solar Frontier Americas.  “As a highly successful Fortune 500 company, we applaud the growth of their renewable energy portfolio, their commitment to sustainable energy generation and the reduction of environmental carbon emissions.”

“This acquisition highlights Dominion’s ongoing commitment to owning and operating renewable energy generation. We are pleased to work with Solar Frontier to provide more clean energy to the grid,” added Jim Eck, vice president of Business Development & Merchant Operations for Dominion’s generation operating segment.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.
