Alamo I is scheduled to be completed by mid-year. Plans for the remaining megawatts will be built through 2016. Newest to the list of partners is Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc., which recently received a notice to proceed by OCI Solar Power on its engineering, procurement and construction agreement.
