Ormat Technologies adding a 10.8 MW solar PV power plant to its portfolio in California. It will be installed near a geothermal power plant of Ormat in the Imperial Valley.

Ormat Technologies has ordered 10.8 MW photovoltaic (PV) modules, which will be installed near Ormat’s geothermal power plant in the Imperial Valley in California.

Power produced will be sold under a 20 year Power Purchase Agreement by Imperial Irrigation District.

This seems to be a stand-alone installation and not be connected to the geothermal plant in a hybrid installation.
