Valos Solar Ventures LLC has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) for its 20 MW SKIC Solar 1 site located near Bakersfield, Calif.

The solar developer says it expects California Public Utility Commission approval for SKIC Solar 1 in October, and construction is set to begin no later than August 2013. The project will begin selling power into the California market by April 2014, per the terms of the PPA.

The SKIC Solar 1 project has already received its conditional use permit, and Valos anticipates its interconnection agreement with PG&E will be signed by November.
