According to First Solar, the project, located on the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Clark County, northeast of Las Vegas, is the first large-scale solar project approved to be built on tribal land in North America.

First Solar says the project is in an advanced stage of development and has a 25-year power purchase agreement in place with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP).

Construction of the project could start as soon as the fourth quarter of this year and be completed by the end of 2015, First Solar adds.
