solar PV project plans

Solar power firm SunPower Corp. agreed with Iberdrola Renewables to design and build a 20 MW solar photovoltaic plant in Arizona.

Iberdrola Renewables will own and operate the plant, to be called Copper Crossing. Construction on the plant began in December and it is expected to be fully operational in 2011. Output from the project will be sold under a long-term power purchase agreement to Salt River Project.

SunPower agreed in October to build a 30 MW solar plant for Iberdrola Renewables in Alamosa County, Colo.
