SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--8minutenergy Renewables, LLC (“8minutenergy”), the largest independent solar power developer in the U.S., has energized Phases 1 and 2 of the 328 megawatt-dc Mount Signal 3 solar photovoltaic (PV) project in the city of Calexico in California’s Imperial Valley. The project is part of the 800 MW Mount Signal Solar Farm, which is among the largest PV installations in the world. With full commissioning of the plant underway, 8minutenergy expects to bring Mount Signal 3 to commercial operation by the end of 2018.

“We’re proud to hit this exciting phase of the Mount Signal solar cluster--one of the largest in the world. This project is important to the Imperial Valley’s future given the amount of abundant and reliable solar power that will be delivered to the region for decades to come,” said 8minutenergy CEO and Founder, Martin Hermann. “As the original developer of the 260 MW Mount Signal 1 project, we are thrilled to see the next project coming to fruition.”

8minutenergy and Capital Dynamics announced the acquisition of MS3 less than a year ago, with 8minutenergy continuing as the developer of the project. Benoit Allehaut, who led the acquisition by Capital Dynamics, described the value of the ongoing partnership between both firms: “Capital Dynamics is delighted about the excellent progress on Mount Signal 3. 8minutenergy demonstrated its world-class development and construction management capabilities with a project ahead of schedule and on-budget."

Mortenson Construction is providing the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracting. First Solar supplied the 2.8 million Series 4 thin-film solar panels being used, and NEXTracker supplied its NX Horizon smart solar tracker. Southern California Edison and 8minutenergy signed a long-term power purchase agreement for the project’s clean energy in 2014.

“All of our dedicated partners have been invaluable in ensuring this important project will be completed on time,” said 8minutenergy President and Co-Founder, Tom Buttgenbach. “We would like to thank Imperial County’s Board of Supervisors, and the entire staff of the County administration, all of whom have been continuously supportive during the construction of this project. We send additional thanks to the local community, environmental groups, and an outstanding local workforce for enabling us to build Mount Signal 3 ahead of schedule, and in an environmentally-friendly manner.”

Once complete, Mount Signal 3 will deliver over 770 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of clean, renewable power to residents of the 15 surrounding counties each year--enough energy to power more than 114,000 homes, and reduce carbon emissions by more than 530,000 metric tons each year. Mount Signal 3 is being built upon 2,000 acres of formerly low-productivity farmland, and its creation will significantly reduce water usage in the region, as well as protect wildlife habitat during construction and operation. Mount Signal 3’s development and construction is creating over 600 jobs in the region.

A little more than 2 years ago, a new management team was put in place to carry through ENGIE’s transformation plan, with the ambition of making the Group a pioneer and precursor of a new decarbonised, decentralised and digitised energy world.

This transformation has now mainly been completed, ahead of the originally announced route plan. Since 2015, it has allowed 14 billion euros to be reinvested in growth drivers, the Group having made 43 acquisitions in the client solutions domain alone.

This is the fruit of the commitment of the more than 150,000 employees of the Group in the 70 countries in which it is present and of the collective operation of the team which makes up ENGIE’s Executive Committee.

This profound change is already reflected in an improvement in the Group’s organic growth, its profitability and a less carbonised asset portfolio, more in phase with its customers’ needs. These favourable prospects have resulted in an increase in the dividend for 2018.

In order to coordinate the performance efforts of ENGIE’s operational entities, Paulo Almirante becomes Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Group. With strong and acknowledged industrial expertise and international experience, he will support the action of the members of the Executive Committee in relation to the current performance and development programs. He remains Executive Vice President, in charge of the Generation Europe, Brazil, NECST (North, South and Eastern Europe), MESCAT (Middle East, South and Central Asia and Turkey) Business Units, and of Environmental and Social Responsibility.

For Isabelle Kocher, ENGIE Chief Executive Officer, “During the last two years, decisive steps have been taken with respect to ENGIE’s transformation. The consistency of our strategy is now being reflected in our results. We owe this to the convergence of the views and cohesiveness of the teams, starting with the Group’s Executive Committee. Time has come to accelerate, and I have asked Paulo Almirante to coordinate efforts to realise the full potential of our three growth drivers: low-carbon generation, global networks and client solutions”.

About ENGIE

We are a global energy and services group, focused on three core activities: low-carbon power generation, mainly based on natural gas and renewable energy, global networks and customer solutions. Driven by our ambition to contribute to a harmonious progress, we take up major global challenges such as the fight against global warming, access to energy to all, or mobility, and offer our residential customers, businesses and communities energy production solutions and services that reconcile individual and collective interests. Our integrated - low-carbon, high-performing and sustainable - offers are based on digital technologies. Beyond energy, they facilitate the development of new uses and promote new ways of living and working. Our ambition is conveyed by each of our 150,000 employees in 70 countries.

The CI Labs Platform, when paired with access to Standard Solar’s capital resources, will give the industry a means to evaluate options for customers in a more efficient manner and provide faster funding for projects should the customer decide to move forward.

“Traditionally, the solar project space has been murky in terms of the ability of finance providers to give solid guidance on the necessary blend of credit underwriting criteria and independent engineering requirements for a viable fund portfolio,” explained Shaun Laughlin, Head of US Strategic Development for Standard Solar. “Our work with CI Labs will allow us to compress and clarify the process for developers and increase the velocity of our capital deployment.”

The team from CI Labs has more than 20 years combined solar industry experience, and Nathan Homan, Co-Founder of CI Labs, helped to create one of the solar industry’s leading commercial & industrial underwriting and analytic financing platforms.

“We believe that our industry experience, combined with the leverage of Standard Solar’s low-cost project finance options, will enable capital providers, developers and solar investors to close projects with much greater ease and efficiency,” said Homan.

Standard Solar and CI Labs will be attending Intersolar 2018 this week—to schedule a meeting and/or submit a project for financing, please contact Travis Tate (travis.tate(at)standardsolar(dot)com, 301-944-5140) to learn more.
