Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E, NYSE:PCG) is seeking approval from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for a contract to buy the output from a 150-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in California.

PG&E wants to purchase the output under a 15-year power purchase agreement with First Solar’s (Nasdaq: FSLR) planned CA Flats PV power plant, according to SolarServer.com. The project will use First Solar’s cadmium telluride thin-film PV modules.

First Solar expects to finish the project by the end of 2018.
