A long-term power purchase agreement has been signed for the output of a 50MW solar farm with 200MWh of battery storage, by Desert Community Energy, one of several Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) energy suppliers in California.
Desert Community Energy signed a 20-year PPA deal with developer Vesper Energy for the CCA to buy all of the energy produced by the Deer Creek project for its customers in the City of Palm Springs. The 378 acre project in California’s Tulare County is scheduled to begin construction in 2022 for completion during the following year.
Desert Community Energy’s chair Geoff Kors said the deal will “help lock-in a significant portion of our energy costs providing rate certainty and saving our residents and businesses US$13 million to US$50 million in cost savings”.
