First Solar continues to expand as the largest solar company in the world. First Solar today announced that it has bought the 250 MW Moapa Solar Project from K Road Power Holdings LLC.
The Moapa Solar Project — located on the Moapa River Indian Reservation in Clark County, northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada — is not complete but is in an advanced stage of development. Depending on how you count, if the solar power plant were completed today, it would be the second- or third-largest solar PV power plant in the world… depending on how you count.
It already has a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) set with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP).
The Moapa Solar Project was also “the first large-scale solar project approved to be built on tribal land in North America,” First Solar notes.
