LS Power now drawing electricity from Arlington Valley Solar Energy II

LS Power announced that the Arlington Valley Solar Energy Project (AV Solar) has completed construction, commissioned the first 19 MW power block and commenced initial delivery of electric energy. At completion, AV Solar will be a 127 MW (AC) photovoltaic solar farm near Arlington, Arizona.

AV Solar, constructed on more than 1,100 acres of land, will directly convert sunlight to electricity. The project will sell its entire output to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) pursuant to a long-term power sales agreement.

Financing was provided by Prudential Capital Group, and a bank group led by Banco Santander S.A. GE Energy Financial Services is participating in AV Solar as an equity partner.
