SunPower and MidAmerican Start Building California Solar Project

SunPower Corp. (SPWR) and MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co. began construction in January on a 579- megawatt solar development in California.

The two Antelope Valley solar farms, in Los Angeles and Kern counties, are expected to be complete by the end of 2015, MidAmerican said today in a statement. They will provide enough power for 400,000 California homes and will sell electricity to Edison International (EIX)’s Southern California Edison utility under long-term contracts.
