Scatec Solar, an independent solar power producer, has received the final approvals necessary to proceed with the construction of an 80 MW photovoltaic solar plant in Iron County, Utah.

The Utah Public Service Commission and Iron County Community Development and Renewal Agency granted the company the final approvals.

The power produced by the Utah Red Hills Renewable Energy Park will be fed into the grid under a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with PacifiCorp, an electric power company that delivers electricity to customers in Utah, Wyoming and Idaho through subsidiary Rocky Mountain Power.

According to Scatec, the ground-mounted photovoltaic solar facility is being developed on approximately 650 acres of privately owned land in Parowan and will interconnect to an existing PacifiCorp 138 kV line in the adjacent Parowan Valley Substation.

Construction is estimated to start in the third quarter of this year, Scatec notes.
