Standard Solar Inc., a Rockville firm specializing in the development and financing of solar electric systems, is financing and will own and operate a solar project in New Mexico.

The 9.8 megawatt solar project, being developed by Mangan Inc. of Long Beach, California, is in the city of Gallup, New Mexico, and will sell electric power to the city, which owns the third-largest municipally-owned utility in the state on an energy sales basis. The city provides electric service to 11,000 customers.

Standard Solar expects the project to generate more than 20 million kilowatt-hours of power each year, which is about 10 percent of the city’s energy use.

Construction on the 28,896 solar module single-axis tracker system is ongoing; Standard Solar expects it to be finished some time before the end of March.
