EDF Renewables North America (EDFR) and Clean Power Alliance (CPA) have signed a 15-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for the Desert Quartzite Solar-plus-Storage project.

The project, consisting of a 300 MWac solar project with a 600 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS), is expected to commence delivery of clean electricity to CPA’s customers throughout Los Angeles and Ventura Counties in February 2024.

Further, the project will utilize horizontal single-axis tracking solar photovoltaic (PV) technology, and is expected to create over 800 construction jobs.
Commenting on the development, Ted Bardacke, Executive Director of Clean Power Alliance, said “the clean reliable energy we will receive from the Desert Quartzite facility fits perfectly within our mission to improve the lives and environment of our customers and communities.”

“Our Board has identified solar-plus-storage as being key to our continued growth and a means to further improve reliability for our millions of customers. This project will also create many more green jobs here in Southern California,” Ted Bardacke added.

Sohinaz Sotoudeh, Senior Director, Origination & Power Marketing at EDF Renewables, said “EDF Renewables is pleased to partner with Clean Power Alliance to supply affordable in-state solar energy to their growing customer base through the Desert Quartzite Solar-plus-Storage Project.”

“It is particularly satisfying to work with CPA, whose mission to empower communities with a choice for renewable power aligns with EDF Renewables’ ambition to help build a sustainable energy future. We are committed to helping CPA and other CCAs achieve their clean energy future through projects that also improve grid resiliency,” Sohinaz Sotoudeh said.

Meanwhile, the expected electricity generated at full capacity will be enough to meet the consumption of over 163,000 average California homes. This is equivalent to avoiding over 669,000 metric tons of carbon (CO₂) emissions annually which represents the greenhouse gas emissions from over 145,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.
