Recognition from NREL underscores aggressive renewable power growth
REDWOOD CITY, CA – November 17, 2023 – Peninsula Clean Energy has been recognized as one of the top U.S. green power providers by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
The agency ranks in the top 10 among Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) agencies in both green power sales and customers, according to NREL’s 2022 Utility Green Pricing Program.
“It’s gratifying to be recognized as a leader in the utility sector,” Peninsula Clean Energy CEO Shawn Marshall said. “We’re committed to meeting the needs of our communities through aggressive renewable power growth.”
As of December 2022, Peninsula Clean Energy sold more than 591,000 megawatt hours of clean power to nearly 311,000 customers in San Mateo County and the City of Los Banos, according to NREL.
Peninsula Clean Energy has one of the most ambitious goals in the U.S. power sector of delivering 100 percent renewable energy annually by 2025 and on a 99 percent time-coincident basis by 2027.
The agency continues to grow and diversify its renewable power procurement. That includes recently signing the largest renewable energy procurement project contract in the agency’s history, to receive 220 megawatts of power for 15 years from the massive SunZia Wind project in New Mexico
