8minutenergy Renewables LLC and saferay Inc. have signed a 20-year contract to sell 20 MW of solar energy from their Redcrest solar project in Kern County, Calif., to Southern California Edison (SCE).
The power purchase agreement (PPA) was conducted with 67RK 8ME LLC, a subsidiary of Folsom, Calif.-based 8minutenergy Renewables and an independent solar PV developer.
The Redcrest project is a utility-scale solar generation facility sited on 160 acres of low-productivity farmland. Construction is projected to begin in 2014, with the site expected to be operational and delivering renewable energy by mid-2015, according to the companies.
The PPA was awarded under SCE's competitive reverse-auction process.
