Sep 17, 2012 - A 10-MW solar power system in Idaho is expected to start construction within weeks, the Associated Press reported on Friday, citing the project's developer Mark Scher.
Scher said that Grandview Solar PV I, located near Boise, was expected to start selling power to local utility Idaho Power Co in January under a power purchase agreement struck in June 2010.
Idaho Power spokesman Brad Bowlin told the AP that the solar plant would be the biggest solar facility connected to Idaho Power's grid.
Scher acquired the project in June 2011 from founders Robert Paul and Peter Richardson who finalised initial legwork.
