According to MidAmerican, the combined projects will form the largest permitted solar photovoltaic power development in the world.

The Antelope Valley Solar Projects will provide renewable energy to Southern California Edison (SCE) under two long-term power purchase contracts approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. SunPower will be the engineering, procurement and construction contractor and will operate and maintain the facility via a multiyear services agreement.

Construction of the solar project is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of this year, with the plants expected to be complete by year-end 2015.
