A 30 MW tracking photovoltaic solar plant, acquired by Southern Co. subsidiary Southern Power in partnership with Turner Renewable Energy, has begun commercial operation.

Southern Co. reports that the Spectrum Solar Facility, located in Clark County, Nev., utilizes tracking technology that helps to enable greater operating efficiency by directing solar panels to track the sun as it moves across the sky.

Electricity generated by the facility will be provided to Nevada Power Co. through a 25-year power purchase agreement, Southern Co. notes.

The 311-acre site was built and will be operated and maintained by solar technology and services provider SunEdison, according to Southern Co. The electric utility holding company says Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy acquired the project from SunEdison in September 2012.
