Suntech partners on Arizona solar plant
Suntech Power Holdings Co. (NYSE: STP) is partnering with engineering and construction firm Zachry Holdings to design a 150 megawatt solar project in Arizona using 800,000 Suntech solar panels, the company said today.
Suntech's U.S. subsidiary, Suntech America, is headquartered in San Francisco. Suntech said the plant will be built about 30 miles west of Suntech's new solar panel manufacturing facility in Goodyear, Ariz. The power produced by the Mesquite Solar 1 project will be sold to Pacific Gas & Electric Co. and is expected to produce 350,000 megawatt hours of electricity annually — or enough electricity to power about 50,000 homes.
Sempra Generation, a subsidiary of San Diego-based Sempra Energy, is developing the Mesquite Solar 1 project. Zachry Holdings Inc. is based in San Antonio, Texas.
