Seven Sisters find home for output

Developer First Wind has finalized 20-year off-take agreements with utility Rocky Mountain Power for the planned 20MW Seven Sisters solar PV projects in Utah.

Financial details of the deals covering six separate 3MW (AC) projects and one of 2MW (AC) were not made public.

Construction start is targeted for late this year with scheduled completion in July 2015. The facilities will supply power to more than 4,000 homes.

The projects are the first in Utah to be developed by First Wind’s new solar division, First Wind Solar Group. It was established to explore solar energy opportunities near the company’s wind projects in the West, Hawaii and the Northeast.

First Wind Solar Group recently completed construction on its Massachusetts-based 3 MW (AC) Millbury Solar project. In addition, it will complete a combined 14 MW (AC) solar project in Warren, Massachusetts later this month and is developing a 20 MW (AC) solar project in Mililani, Hawaii.
