First Solar Secures PPAs For 72 MW Of Solar Projects In California


First Solar Inc. has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Pacific Gas and Electric Co. for 72 MW of solar electricity to be generated at two PV plants that First Solar is developing in central California.

Construction on the PV projects – the 32 MW Lost Hills project in Kern County and the 40 MW Cuyama project in Santa Barbara County – could start as early as 2013, First Solar says.

The PPAs – both of which have delivery terms beginning in 2019 – are subject to approval by the California Public Utilities Commission, whose decision is expected in the first half of 2013.
