Sonoma Clean Power Signs PPA
Sonoma Clean Power (SCP) announced the signing of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for the development of an 11.6 MW AC solar plus 32 MWh battery storage project in Sonoma, California.
Construction of the 75-acre project is expected in the second half of 2023 in southern Sonoma County, tying into a nearby electrical substation.
In addition to the PPA, Luminia and Kenwood Investments, LLC, are managing the late-stage development of the project.
When the project is completed, SCP will dispatch the 100% renewable electricity to its EverGreen premium service customers throughout Sonoma and Mendocino counties. The solar PV system also includes 32 MWh of lithium-ion battery storage that can distribute stored solar power across the grid during peak evening hours.
“Our mission is to make cleaner electricity accessible to our customers by putting the power to procure energy in the hands of local communities,” said Deb Emerson, managing director of procurement for Sonoma Clean Power, in a statement. “With this solar and storage project we can provide renewable energy on-demand, regardless of the time of day, and promote 100 percent carbon-free energy generated right here in Sonoma County.”
EverGreen utilizes solar and geothermal power from facilities located exclusively in Sonoma and Mendocino counties.
