North Star Solar signs PPA with PG&E

North Star Solar, the wholly owned affiliate of NorthLight Power - the joint-venture between REC and the Summit Power Group - has signed a 60MW solar power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E). NorthLight Power will act as project developer of the project, which will be located in Mendota, Fresno County, California.

The project, which is expected to utilize REC modules, is subject to approval by the California Public Utilities Commission, completion of CAISO interconnection studies, and receipt of certain environmental and other permits related to the site in Fresno County. NorthLight Power must also secure external equity and debt financing for the project on behalf of North Star Solar. NorthLight Power is currently working to select an EPC provider for the project.

The project is expected to be up and running by the end of the second quarter 2013. No further details have been disclosed.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
