California CCAs double renewable energy commitment, adding 1 GW capacity, in one year

by Renewable Energy World Editors

The California Community Choice Association (CalCCA) announced this week that community choice aggregators (CCAs) in the state have signed long-term contracts with new renewable energy facilities totaling more than 2,000 MW (2 GW), reflecting a strong commitment by CCAs to drive clean energy and economic development in California and help the state achieve ambitious decarbonization and climate change goals.

CCAs achieved the 2,000 MW milestone in October when Monterey Bay Community Power and Silicon Valley Clean Energy approved power purchase agreements (PPAs) totaling 278 MW of solar coupled with 340 MWh of battery storage for two separate projects, to be built in Kern and Kings Counties. In 2017, CCAs in California had secured approximately 1,000 MW of new renewables under long-term contracts, so the figure has doubled in one year.
