Construction has begun on the Antelope Valley Solar Projects - two projects totaling 579 MW co-located in Kern and Los Angeles counties, Calif.

MidAmerican Solar owns the projects, and SunPower designed and developed them and is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor. SunPower also will provide operations and maintenance services for the plants via a multiyear services agreement.

Southern California Edison (SCE) will buy the projects’ output under two long-term power purchase contracts.

"Southern California Edison appreciates the opportunity to work with MidAmerican Solar and SunPower to meet California's renewable energy goals and recognizes the start of construction as an important step on that path," says Steven Eisenberg, SCE’s vice president of energy contracts.
