First Solar Wins SCE Panel Deal

Southern California Edison (SCE) has begun installing solar panels at the first of approximately 150 Southern California commercial rooftops that eventually will make up the company’s two square mile solar generation project.

During the next month or so, SCE will attach 33,000 solar panels to a 600,000 square-foot (55,200 square metre) commercial roof in Fontana, leased from ProLogis. When completed, the installation will generate 2 MW. Thin-film PV company First Solar is to supply the PV system for this first installation. The project, which was originally announced in March of this year, has an estimated price tag of US $875 million.

Subject to regulatory approval, during the next five years SCE plans to install 250 MW of PV capacity, though decisions have not yet been made on other building sites or panel suppliers.
