Solar manufacturer SolarWorld has begun construction of its Desert Star solar projects in California's Mojave Desert.

Situated on two land parcels totaling 164 acres between the communities of Twentynine Palms and Joshua Tree, the Desert Star projects will equal 25 MW and feed an estimated 58,312 MWh of renewable energy annually into the Southern California Edison electrical grid.

The projects will feature 100,092 SolarWorld Sunmodule solar panels manufactured in the company’s Hillsboro, Ore., factory and mounted on SolarWorld’s Suntrac single-axis trackers. SolarWorld began acquiring and designing the Desert Star projects this past spring, and grading and site preparation began in June.
