El Paso Electric Co. (EPE) and Newman Solar LLC, owned by Colorado-based juwi solar Inc. (JSI), have agreed to build a 10 MW solar energy facility in Northeast El Paso, Texas, next to EPE's Newman Generation Station.

JSI says it and EPE have signed a 30-year power purchase agreement in which the utility will purchase all of the solar energy, renewable energy credits and associated attributes. The company adds that the ground-mounted photovoltaic system will interconnect to EPE's new Patriot Substation via a 13.8 kV distribution feeder.

JSI will be responsible for developing, designing, building and operating the Newman Solar project. The design phase will begin in early summer, shortly followed by construction, and final completion of the project is tentatively scheduled for the end of this year, JSI notes.
