First Solar will design, engineer and construct the 55 MW Niland project using its thin-film solar modules.

Construction is expected to begin next year and be completed in 2011.

The contract is conditioned on approval by the Los Angeles City Council and the mayor of Los Angeles. The solar arrays will require building permits from Imperial County, First Solar says.
