First Solar to start module installation at AV Solar Ranch One

Tempe, Ariz., June 25, 2012 — The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works and First Solar, Inc. have reached an agreement on the installation of solar modules at the Solar Ranch One photovoltaic power plant currently under construction in the Antelope Valley.

The agreement enables First Solar to continue construction activities of the 230-MW power plant that, when completed in 2013, will generate enough electricity to power 75,000 homes. Installation of the modules had been delayed while First Solar and public works worked to achieve agreement related to the module code certifications.

Work on the project began in August 2011 and is creating about 400 jobs during construction on the 2,100-acre site.

First Solar expects to ramp up staffing for the project over the next several weeks.
