Pacific Gas and Electric awards sPower PPAs for three solar projects in California

Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) recently awarded sPower, headquartered in Salt Lake City, announced a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) contracts for three new solar projects in California.

spowerThe three facilities, named Bayshore A, B and C, located in Lancaster, Calif., will be constructed and commissioned in 2017. When fully operational, the Bayshore cluster will generate enough clean, renewable energy to power more than 11,000 Californian homes.

“We are excited to expand our relationship with PG&E to a total of more than 100 megawatts of solar, helping PG&E to achieve their goals of delivering safe, reliable, clean energy to their customers,” said Ryan Creamer, sPower CEO. “We admire PG&E’s leadership in clean power transformation efforts and are pleased to be able to be a part of the process.”

California renewable portfolio standard policy requires utilities to source a third of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Earlier this year, PG&E announced that they are well ahead of schedule, having already reached nearly 30 percent – maintaining the utility’s position as a national front-runner in greenhouse gas reductions.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
