NRG Solar LLC and the North American Development Bank have announced the signing of a $19.2 million loan for the construction of a 5 MW solar power project. The project will be located at the San Diego State University Imperial Valley Campus, and the university will have access to the facility for research and educational purposes.

The Imperial Irrigation District, a California irrigation district and publicly owned utility, will purchase the electricity from the project under a 25 year power purchase agreement.

The project was certified by the Border Environment Cooperation Commission on March 13 and consists of designing, building and operating the facility using polycrystalline photovoltaic modules manufactured by Trina Solar mounted on ViaSol single-axis trackers.

Boeing has signed an engineering, procurement and construction project for the project, which will occupy about 30 acres of the university campus.
