Private asset manager Capital Dynamics and US solar major First Solar Inc (NASDAQ:FSLR) today announced the commissioning of the 280-MW California Flats solar plant in California.
The plant is co-located with one of the largest working cattle ranches in the country -- the Jack Ranch owned by Hearst. It supports and complements the ranch’s operation, covering some 3% of the area, First Solar said.
Built in two phases over a period of three years, the facility uses the Series 6 modules manufactured by First Solar. It has two long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) in place with utility and corporate renewable customers.
Capital Dynamics bought the solar project from First Solar in August 2017.
