Bechtel will also build the 7.2-mi transmission line to connect the facility to a nearby substation.

The contract value was not disclosed.

The 110 MWac facility will be built on 1,100 acres and produce enough energy to power approximately 35,000 homes.

Jim Ivany, president of Bechtel’s Renewable Power business group, says construction is scheduled to begin in May pending final approval from the California Public Utilities Commission, with scheduled completion in 2013.
