SDCP, California’s second largest Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) serving nearly 1 million customers, will receive renewable energy and attributes in a long-term power offtake agreement when the project is expected to come online in 2027.

Purple Sage Energy Center is in Nevada, between Las Vegas and the California border, in an optimal solar power location because of its proximity to grid demand and abundance of sun. Primergy working with the Bureau of Land Management to develop new standards to improve the siting, design and construction of renewable energy operations.
