The project consists of fixed-tilt polycrystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) modules. It will be built on 123 acres within the Imperial Irrigation District (IID) and adjacent to the Niland electric substation. IID will buy 20 MW of the generated output.
The project was certified by the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC) on June 6, 2011.
