First Solar Adds 240 Kilowatts to Arizona Solar Project

First Solar, LLC announced in late August that it has supplied another 240 kilowatts to Tucson Electric Power's Springerville Generating Station in eastern Arizona. The Springerville solar power installation now totals 3.5 megawatts in direct-current generating capacity, including more than 1 megawatt in thin-film solar modules. First Solar has provided about half of the thin-film module capacity at the site. See the First Solar press release (PDF 102 KB). Download Acrobat Reader.

PowerLight Corporation has also been busy in recent months, installing a 120-kilowatt solar power system at the Domaine Carneros winery in Napa, California, as well as a 53-kilowatt system on a municipal building in San Diego, California, and a 22-kilowatt system on a public school in Allston, Massachusetts.
