United States based electricity provider Peninsula Clean Energy has signed contracts to procure 245 MW of power from three wind projects located in California. This will help supplement the agency’s growing portfolio of solar generation so as to achieve its goal of providing reliable and clean power to its consumers by 2025.
These three contracts include:
Shiloh I: Power will be procured from an existing 150 MW wind project in Solano County through a seven-year contract extension with Avangrid Renewables that will end by 2030. The current five-year term ends in December 2023.
Voyager II: The agency will procure half of the capacity and renewable energy generated by the existing ~130 MW wind project near Mojave through an eight years’ contract with Shell Energy North America (US), L.P., which will end in 2028.
Sky River: The contract is for half of the expected 60 MW generated for 20 years from this project being repowered by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources near Bakersfield in Kern County. The existing project will be repowered by replacing 157 turbines with 11 new turbines for Peninsula Clean Energy’s portion and is expected to be operational by September 2021.
Peninsula Clean Energy is a Community Choice Aggregation agency and the official electricity provider for San Mateo County. Founded in 2016 with a mission to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the county, the agency serves 295,000 customers by providing more than 3,500 GWh annually of electricity that is 95% carbon-free.
