Gestamp Solar, the photovoltaic energy division of Gestamp Renewables, and solar project developer 8minutenergy Renewables LLC have signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to sell 50 MW of energy from the Midway Solar Farm project in Imperial County, Calif., to Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E).

8minutenergy says that the two companies have a joint agreement to develop and build the solar project. The Midway Solar Farm, 8minutenergy adds, is a utility-scale facility sited on 486 acres of low-productivity farmland. Construction is projected to begin in 2015, with the site expected to be operational and delivering renewable energy to third parties in 2016 and PG&E in 2020.

The PPA is pending approval from the California Public Utilities Commission, 8minutenergy notes.
