First Solar acquires PV developments

14 January 2010– First Solar Inc. has completed the acquisition of several thin film photovoltaic developments from Edison Mission Group.

The projects are sited mostly on private land from California to the Southwest, range from 20 to 150 MW and are not yet contracted with utilities.

First Solar has provided engineering, procurement and construction services since 2008 and EMG was responsible for land acquisition and permitting. With the current projects, First Solar will handle all development and permitting.

First Solar recently completed development and construction of its first California utility-scale solar power plant in December 2009, the 21 MW AC Blythe project that was sold to NRG Energy and supplies electricity to Southern California Edison.
