Tri-State and First Solar Announce 30-MW Solar Project in New Mexico

LCG, March 25, 2009--Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association (Tri-State) announced yesterday that it executed an agreement with First Solar, Inc. to develop a 30-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) electric generating facility in northeastern New Mexico. Tri-State contracted to purchase the power generated from the facility over a 25-year term.

Construction of the Cimarron I Solar Project is scheduled to begin by April 2010, with the initial phase delivering power by August and full operations achieved by year-end.

The Cimarron I Solar Project will be built on a 250-acre site in Colfax County. The project will include approximately 500,000 PV modules, with each module measuring 2 feet by 4 feet. The PV modules will employ First Solar's patented, thin film semiconductor technology.

First Solar will act as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor and expects to monitor and maintain the facility over time. First Solar also expects that it will transfer all or substantially all of its equity interest in the project once construction is complete.
