Digital Vision/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — After resolving a code conflict dealing with certification and health and safety requirements, the public works department, First Solar Inc. has restarted their August 2011 construction of a solar power plant according the LA Times.

The construction will be hiring up to 400 workers, and the site will be located in the northern part of the county on a 2,100-acre property previously used for agriculture.

The 230-megawatt power plant will hopefully provide 75,000 homes with electricity when they are set to open in 2013.
