PSEG Solar Source, a subsidiary of energy company Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG), has purchased two utility-scale solar power plants with a combined generating capacity of 4.4 MW from CSI Holdco LLC, a subsidiary of Canadian Solar Inc.

The solar installations are located in California's Shasta Mountains. PSEG says that the plants, together now called the PSEG Shasta Solar Farm, have a 20-year off-taking agreement with utility Pacific Gas and Electric.

Construction of the plants started in July, with commercial operation expected in early 2014, PSEG adds.
