Community choice aggregators in California added 1,400 MW of new renewable deals this year, to reach more than 11,225 MW of long-term non fossil energy resource agreements to date.
These contracts represent more than $14 billion in renewable and energy storage projects. They are estimated to support a total 24,000 construction jobs.
“CCAs are procuring the diversity of resources that are needed for the state to achieve a 100% clean electricity system, with a focus on affordability, reliability, and resilience,” California CCA Executive Director Beth Vaughan said in a statement at the end of last week.
CCAs inked a total of 243 agreements for solar, wind, energy storage, geothermal, demand response, and biogas running between 10 to 25 years, with all to be operational by 2026.
