California community choice aggregators Central Coast Community Energy and Silicon Valley Clean Energy have each signed 15-year contracts with Pattern Energy Group to receive energy from SunZia Wind, a new renewable energy project located in New Mexico.
The project is expected to begin full construction in 2023 and come online in 2026.
SunZia Wind is expected to provide over 3,500 megawatts of new wind energy generation to the California Independent System Operator and other western energy markets.
Of the new project, Central Coast Community Energy will receive its share of power from the overall facility in the amount of 200 MW and SVCE will receive 100 MW, with the remaining available capacity contracted to load serving entities in California and Arizona.
