Major US solar developer sPower has signed a 22-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with CleanPowerSF for a 100MW solar project in Lancaster, California.
CleanPowerSF is a California Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) managed by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) that serves the city and county of San Francisco.
sPower’s San Pablo Raceway Solar Project is expected to be commercially operational in 2019 and generate enough renewable energy to power over 87,000 average San Francisco households. The project will create approximately 500 positions during its construction and 10 full time positions during operation.
The San Pablo Raceway Project will be part of sPower’s large solar portfolio in the Antelope Valley, which totals over 600MW. This is the fourth PPA sPower has signed with CCAs in California.
sPower recently signed a 1.43GW module supply deal for its US projects with Chinese PV manufacturer JinkoSolar.
Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
