Tenaska CPV plant

Tenaska Solar Ventures picked Soitec’s Concentrix concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology for a 150 MW solar power plant.

The plant, the Imperial Solar Energy Center West, will be owned by San Diego Gas & Electric. Soitec will begin delivery of the systems in 2013 and the plant is expected to be complete by 2015.

Soitec will also build a factory in the San Diego area to manufacture its CPV modules. The factory is expected to produce 200 MW of modules annually.

SDG&E signed a 25-year power-purchase agreement with a unit of CSOLAR Development LLC, a renewable energy company managed by Tenaska Solar Ventures that will develop and operate the ISEC West solar power plant.
