Sempra U.S. Gas & Power has announced that the cities of Los Angeles and Burbank, Calif., have approved a 20-year agreement to buy power from the company's proposed 250 MW Copper Mountain Solar 3 project, to be constructed in Boulder City, Nev., approximately 40 miles southeast of Las Vegas.

The Copper Mountain Solar 3 agreement provides the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) with the bulk of the power produced by the solar power plant - 210 MW - through an agreement with the Southern California Public Power Authority. The City of Burbank will purchase the remaining 40 MW.

Construction on the 1,370-acre Copper Mountain Solar 3 project is expected to begin next month and be complete in late 2015. Power will be delivered from the plant to Southern California through a substation and transmission lines operated by LADWP.
