Tenaska opts to pass on use of Soitec Solar’s concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology for its power purchase agreement to produce 150 MW of clean solar energy

CSOLAR IV West (CSOLAR), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tenaska Solar Ventures (Tenaska), has notified San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) that it will not be using Soitec Solar’s concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology for its power purchase agreement (PPA) to produce 150 megawatts (MW) of clean energy for its CSOLAR IV West solar plant.  Instead CSOLAR has decided to use traditional photovoltaic (PV) technology to carry out the project.

Soitec Solar is not a party to the PPA between SDG&E and Tenaska. Tenaska’s decision was made public at the April 10, 2014 California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) meeting.

Soitec Solar is disappointed with Tenaska’s decision, which does not materially jeopardize the prospects for its North American manufacturing facility in California from which it supplies a worldwide demand for its CPV technology nor impacts Soitec PPAs with SDG&E and previously approved by the CPUC and currently under development.
