SolarWorld on Sept. 7 said it has started construction of its 25 MW Desert Star Solar Projects in California’s Mojave Desert. The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) division of SolarWorld is overseeing all phases of the projects, including design, engineering, procurement, permitting and construction. Desert Star will feed an estimated 58,312 MWh of energy annually into the Southern California Edison electrical grid.
The solar power project will feature 100,092 SolarWorld Sunmodule solar panels mounted on SolarWorld’s Suntrac single-axis trackers.
The project is expected to be completed in 2012.
