Tenaska Solar Project in California Begins Commercial Operations

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Tenaska Inc., a closely held renewable-energy developer, is delivering power from a 130-megawatt solar farm in Southern California’s Imperial Valley.

The Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center South project near El Centro, California, began commercial operations Nov. 1, according to an e-mailed statement today from the Omaha, Nebraska-based company. Sempra Energy utility San Diego Gas & Electric agreed to buy the power under a 25-year contract.

Prudential Financial Inc. agreed last week to purchase a minority stake in the power plant.

Construction is expected to begin early next year on Tenaska’s 150-megawatt Imperial Solar Energy Center West, which will also sell power to SDG&E, according to the statement.
