BOISE -- A construction company sued a solar developer planning a big Idaho project, saying it hasn't been paid for $900,000 worth of work.

The Idaho Business Review reports Michigan-based Walbridge East filed the lawsuit this month in U.S. District Court in Idaho.

Walbridge alleges the developer behind the planned 20-megawatt Grandview PV Solar One project in Elmore County hasn't fulfilled its obligations.

Walbridge says it signed a $20.5 million contract last December, to design and build what would be Idaho's first utility-scale solar power plant.

Corona Capital Partners of Albany, N.Y., is the developer behind the solar facility.

It's supposed to have the project completed and delivering electricity to Idaho Power Co. by mid-January, to meet contract deadlines.

Mark Scher, Corona's owner, didn't return a call Friday from The Associated Press.
