Yingli Green to supply PV modules for 170-MW park in California
Nov 28, 2012 - Chinese photovoltaic (PV) module maker Yingli Green Energy Holding Co Ltd (NYSE:YGE) on Tuesday said its US arm had nabbed a module supply deal for the 170-MW Centinela solar power project in the US state of California.
Financial details were not provided.
The project, with a capacity of 200-MW in direct current (DC), is owned by Centinela Solar Energy LLC, a member of US power generation and transmission group LS Power Group. It will be set up in two phases -- a 125-MW first phase and a 45-MW second phase. The whole plant is expected to become operational in the middle of 2014 and to produce enough power to supply over 60,000 households, Yingli said.
US engineer and builder Fluor Corp (NYSE:FLR) will build the plant under a lump-sum engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) deal and will provide operations and maintenance services. Utility San Diego Gas & Electric will buy the output under 20-year power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Centinela Solar.
