Tenaska Solar Ventures chose First Solar to design and build the 150 MW AC Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center West project near El Centro, California.


First Solar will provide full engineering, procurement and construction services on the project, employing its advanced thin film photovoltaic modules and single-axis tilt technology. The project sits on about 1,100 acres of previously disturbed land in Imperial County.

Tenaska Imperial West is the second solar project in Southern California’s Imperial Valley developed, owned and managed by Tenaska. In November of 2013, First Solar completed construction on the 130 MW AC Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center South power plant for Tenaska.

First Solar has already started engineering and expects to begin construction later in 2014, with full commercial operation anticipated in 2016. San Diego Gas & Electric Co. holds a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) for all electricity generated by Tenaska Imperial West.

Tenaska is an energy company based in Omaha, Nebraska.
