Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) awarded sPower a 20-year power purchase agreement for three new solar power projects in California. The three projects, named Bayshore A, B, and C will be built and commissioned in 2017.
California has a renewable portfolio standard that requires utilities to source a third of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020. PG&E announced earlier that they are well ahead of schedule, having already reached 30 percent.
“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.”
