Google’s 24/7 carbon-free energy deal for its California offices ‘could be replicable model’

Energy Storage News

California community choice aggregator (CCA) electricity supplier Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) announced last week that it has signed PPAs with the technology giant that matches Google’s local energy demand 24/7 with clean energy production.

Google is targeting carbon emissions-free running of its operations by 2030 and, like SCVE is headquartered in California, which has a state policy goal of 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045.

SCVE meanwhile is a community-owned energy agency which provides energy to members in six California jurisdictions. The 10-year deal will see SVCE serving the load of Google’s Mountain View and Sunnyvale offices to match demand with carbon-free energy for at least 92% of hours a year.
