Solar power plant enters operations

NRG Solar, a unit of NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NRG), started producing electricity at its 20 MW Roadrunner Solar Generating Facility, the second-largest photovoltaic (PV) project in New Mexico.


First Solar Inc. (Nasdaq: FSLR) provided engineering, construction and procurement services using its thin film photovoltaic solar modules, and will also be the facility's operations and maintenance contractor.


The Roadrunner facility uses thin-film modules mounted on single-axis trackers. The system rotates the PV solar panels to follow the sun throughout the day.


Power generated by the Roadrunner facility will be sold to El Paso Electric under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
