The 139 MW solar photovoltaic Campo Verde Solar Facility, located in Imperial County, Calif., has begun commercial operation.

The solar installation is owned by Southern Co. subsidiary Southern Power in partnership with Turner Renewable Energy.

Southern Co. says the plant was built and is operated and maintained by First Solar, a provider of comprehensive PV solar systems. In addition, the nearly 2.3 million PV modules use First Solar's thin-film technology and employ a fixed-tilt design, the energy company notes.

According to Southern Co., the electricity generated by the Campo Verde Solar Facility will serve a 20-year power purchase agreement with San Diego Gas & Electric Co.
