First Solar to build 26 MW solar plant for NRG

First Solar Inc is to build a 26 MW solar power plant for power producer NRG Energy Inc in Arizona, US under the latest deal between two of the biggest players in the American renewable energy sector.

Reuters reports that NRG is the majority owner of the 290 MW Agua Caliente plant that First Solar is building near Yuma, Arizona, and the two companies previously teamed up on a 21 MW plant in Blythe, California, in 2009 and the 20 MW Road Runner plant in New Mexico last year.

The new plant, the Avra Valley solar project, will be built by First Solar and use the U.S. company's thin film panels mounted on a tracker that tilts the panels to follow the sun's arc.
