Tenaska Solar Ventures acquires Silverleaf solar project

Tenaska Solar Ventures LLC (TSV), an affiliate of Tenaska, has acquired the proposed 160 MW Silverleaf photovoltaic (PV) solar project from Agile Solar Holdings and Bregal Energy.

Agile Energy will provide development services to TSV through the completion of project permitting. TSV will assume responsibility for all other development aspects of the project, including securing a power purchase agreement.

The project, to be named Tenaska Silverleaf Solar Energy Center, would be located on approximately 1,100 acres of agricultural land west of El Centro, Calif., and east of Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center West, a 150 MW solar generating facility also being developed by an affiliate of TSV.

Construction is slated to begin as early as 2014, with commercial operation targeted for as early as 2015. The project is expected to provide approximately 250 direct jobs during peak construction and two to six full-time positions after the plant begins operations.
