E.On utility-scale solar farm enters service in California

E.On has completed another utility-scale solar power project in the United States. Maricopa West, a 28 MW photovoltaic farm in Kern County in southern California, is now fully operational.

A tracking system ensures that its 89,000 panels are always oriented toward the sun. Maricopa West was completed ahead of schedule and under its budget of roughly $53 million.

With regard to the strategy E.On plans to develop more major solar projects in the United States through E.On Solar, its San Francisco-based unit. E.On has completed several such projects in Arizona. Maricopa West is the second solar farm it has built in California.
