California community choice aggregator’s board approves 15-year geothermal energy contract
Public Power Daily
The Board of Directors for California’s Clean Power Alliance (CPA) recently approved a 15-year contract with Ormat Technologies Inc.’s Heber South Geothermal facility located in Imperial Valley, Calif.
Once the long-term contract takes effect January 1, 2022, the facility will add 14 megawatts of renewable energy to CPA’s energy portfolio. With an expected average annual generation of 116,508 MWh, the project will also allow CPA to further comply with the state of California’s aggressive renewable energy mandates.
In addition, the contract brings CPA closer to meeting its regulatory obligations under California’s SB 100 and SB 350, which require that 65% of Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) compliance related renewable energy supply be sourced from long-term contracts beginning in the 2021-2024 compliance period.
