Photovoltaic solar system provider First Solar Inc. has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with member cities of the Southern California Public Power Authority for the electricity to be generated at the 40 MW Kingbird photovoltaic solar power plant in Kern County, Calif.

First Solar is developing and will construct the project.

The company says the cities of Pasadena, Riverside, Colton and Azusa signed 20-year PPAs that will supply power from the solar plant to the cities' municipal power utilities.

Depending on final permitting, First Solar reports that construction on the 320-acre Kingbird project could start in mid-2014 and is expected to be commissioned in late 2015.
