Kyocera to supply modules to Arizona PV project

Kyocera Solar Inc. announced that it has begun shipments of its U.S.-made solar modules for a 127 MW, utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) installation in southwestern Arizona.

Manufactured in Kyocera's San Diego production facility, the 245 W and 315 W modules will become part of the Arlington Valley Solar Energy II project, scheduled to begin operations in late 2013 on approximately 1,160 acres near Arizona's Hassayampa Substation in Maricopa County. Once complete, the project will generate 127 MW of capacity.

The AV Solar project is being developed by LS Power Group and will be the company's largest solar facility to date. Power produced by the project will be sold to San Diego Gas & Electric.
