Southern Company (NYSE: SO) chairman, president and CEO Thomas A. Fanning and Turner Renewable Energy founder Ted Turner TODAY announced that the companies have acquired and will bring on line a 20 megawatt solar photovoltaic power plant in Nevada.

The Apex Solar Project was acquired from and was built by SunEdison, a leading global provider of solar energy services and a subsidiary of MEMC Electronic Materials.

Turner, an internationally renowned philanthropist and environmentalist, teamed with Southern Company in January 2010 to form a strategic alliance to pursue development of renewable energy projects in the United States. Southern Company and Turner are focusing on developing and investing in large-scale solar photovoltaic projects in the Southwest, where solar resources are most in demand.

The partnership's first project was acquisition and development of the 30-megawatt Cimarron Solar Facility on land adjacent to Turner's Vermejo Park Ranch near Raton, N.M.

The Apex Solar Project is located on a 154-acre site in the city of North Las Vegas in Clark County, Nev. SunEdison built the plant and will be responsible for ongoing operations and maintenance for the facility. The company develops, finances, installs and operates distributed power plants using proven photovoltaic technologies, delivering fully managed, predictably priced solar energy services for its commercial, government and utility customers.
