enXco, EDF Energies Nouvelles US subsidiary, announced it has entered into a power purchase agreement with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) for a 130 MWp(1) solar photovoltaic facility in California.

The power plant will be built in two phases with the first 60 MWp expected to be online by the end of 2012 and the remaining 70 MWp to be operational by mid-2013. This project is subject to California Public Utilities Commission approval. “The Catalina photovoltaic project represents the Group’s largest power plant developed in the U.S.,” said Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO of enXco. “This agreement illustrates our successful solar business expansion in North America.”
