Kyocera Shipping Solar Panels to Arizona Power Project

Kyocera Corp. (6971), the Japanese electronics company, began shipments of 34 megawatts of solar panels for a 127-megawatt project in southwest Arizona.

The company’s Kyocera Solar unit expects to complete the order for the Arlington Valley Solar Energy II project in March, Kyoto-based Kyocera said today in a statement.

LS Power Group is developing the solar farm, which will span about 1,160 acres (469 hectares) and is scheduled to begin producing electricity late next year. Sempra Energy (SRE)’s San Diego Gas & Electric will purchase the power.

Kyocera is making the panels at its San Diego factory. The statement didn’t identify other suppliers for the project.
