A solar panel installer has signed a deal to build a solar power plant in Oregon.
The solar power company SolarCity signed a contract with the state to build the first solar power station on private property in the town of Salem.
The company is the largest solar energy company in the U.S.
SolarCity is one of several solar power companies that have made investments in the state, which has experienced a resurgence in solar power in recent years.
The deal is a first for Oregon.
The first of its kind in the United States, SolarCity has signed deals in places like California, Pennsylvania, New York and Massachusetts.
SolarCity also signed a $3.8 billion contract with state officials to build its $1.9 billion solar energy system in Oregon last year.

The company is developing the project in Salem with help from local firms and the local government.
It also has partnered with Oregon State University and Oregon Department of Transportation to make sure the site is environmentally friendly.
The Salem solar power project will be located in the Town of Salem at a site where the town’s current electrical grid used to connect to an old transmission line.
Solar City said the company will be responsible for maintaining the site and for its operations.

Solar power has been gaining traction in the region, with solar power installations growing by nearly 70 percent from 2009 to 2016, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.
Solar power accounted for about one-third of the U
