PG&E Picks Next Three Projects in Utility-Owned Solar Plan

Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- PG&E Corp., which owns California’s largest utility, has chosen contractors to complete three solar-energy projects under construction in Fresno County, California.

The projects total 50 megawatts of capacity and are being developed as part of a five-year program to own and operate 250 megawatts of photovoltaic projects, San Francisco-based PG&E said today in a posting on its company blog.

Q-Cells SE is building 10-megawatt and 20-megawatt installations using its solar panels, Lynsey Paulo, a PG&E spokeswoman, said today in an e-mail. Cupertino Electric Inc. will build a third, 20-megawatt plant using Suntech Power Holdings Co. modules, PG&E said. The projects are expected to begin operating by October 2012. Costs weren’t disclosed.

PG&E also is seeking bids from developers as part of a separate five-year program to buy power from 250 megawatts of solar projects.
