sPower has provided 68.8MW of utility-scale solar PV to Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) via its Antelope DSR 1 and 2 facilities that achieved commercial operation last year.
The facilities will provide clean energy to the cities of Azusa, Colton, Riverside and Vernon in southern California. The facilities will together generate enough energy to power 10,000 homes annually.
“SCPPA continues to seek long-term supplies of cost-effective renewable energy resources like the power we’re receiving from sPower’s solar farms,” said Ted Beatty, SCPPA interim executive director. “These facilities help SCPPA’s members provide safe, reliable and low cost electricity to the more than two million customers they serve.”
The Antelope facilities are comprised of more than 200,000 modules and are located in Lancaster.
“sPower is excited to build upon our relationship with SCPPA, who has been instrumental in shaping southern California’s power markets,” said Hans Isern, sPower SVP of utility power marketing. “We appreciate the opportunity to support SCPPA and its member agencies in achieving their renewable goals by delivering clean energy at the lowest possible cost.”
