First Solar Sells Macho Springs Solar Project to Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy

First Solar sold the 50-MW Macho Springs Solar Power Plant to Southern Company subsidiary Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy. El Paso Electric has a 20-year PPA for all energy generated by the power plant. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The power plant, located on approximately 600 acres of State Trust land near Deming, New Mexico, is the state's largest solar power plant. First Solar developed and constructed the project, working closely with the New Mexico State Land Office and El Paso Electric. Macho Springs is the third project Southern Power and Turner Renewable Energy have acquired from First Solar. In April 2013, the partnership purchased the 139-MW Campo Verde Solar Facility in Imperial County, Calif., and in 2010 the group bought the 30-MW Cimarron Solar Project.
