8minutenergy Renewables LLC and Saferay Inc. will sell power from the Woodmere Solar Farm in Kern County, California, to PG&E once the plant is completed in December 2015, Folsom, California-based 8minutenergy said today in an e-mailed statement. The company expects to start construction next year.

The 20-year contract must be approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. Terms weren’t disclosed.
