New Mexico Solar PV Project Operational

LCG, January 26, 2011--Southern Company announced that commercial operations are underway at the Cimarron Solar Facility, a 30-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) electric generating facility in northeastern New Mexico.

The solar PV project is a venture between Southern Company and Ted Turner. First Solar, Inc., the original developer, sold the project to them in March 2010. First Solar continued to develop and build the project and will operate the project under a long-term contract. Tri-State contracted in March 2010 to purchase the power generated from the facility over a 25-year term.

Southern Company Chairman, President and CEO Tom Fanning stated, "This is a key milestone for Southern Company as we steadily incorporate more renewables into our energy portfolio. Renewables, along with new nuclear, increased energy efficiency, 21st century coal technology and additional natural gas, all will be crucial to meeting this nation's growing energy demand."

The Cimarron Solar Facility is located on a 250-acre site in Colfax County and includes approximately 500,000 PV modules, with each module measuring 2 feet by 4 feet. The PV modules employ First Solar's patented, thin film semiconductor technology.
