PG&E Inks Deal to Provide Solar for Those Without Rooftop Panels

(Bloomberg) -- PG&E Corp. said it has signed its first so-called community solar project, which allows customers who can’t install panels on their roofs the option of buying solar energy from a nearby facility.

Residents will be able to purchase power directly from a 1.66 megawatt solar plant being developed by ForeFront Power in Fresno County, California, according to a PG&E statement Thursday. The new project is expect to be online by the middle of next year.
