Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV) has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) for four solar photovoltaic (PV) projects with Southern California Edison (SCE).

FRV plans to finance, develop, construct, own and operate the four facilities to be installed in Los Angeles and Kern County in the US.

The PV projects are expected to generate 120MW of energy sufficient to power 78,000 homes.

FRV will install three facilities in Kern County, including one facility with 60MW capacity and two facilities with 20MW generation capacity each.

The solar power projects are due to begin operations in 2013 and will connect with the existing transmission lines.
