EDF Renewables North America Signs Agreement with Southern California Public Power Authority for Solar+Storage Energy Project

SAN DIEGO & GLENDORA, Calif. , February 27 /Businesswire/ - EDF Renewables North America today announced a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) for a portion of the Bonanza Solar and Storage project. The carbon-free electricity generated by the 125 MWac solar photovoltaic (PV) system and 65 MW 4-hour Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is guaranteed to begin delivery to SCPPA’s participating members, Pasadena Water & Power and Azusa Light & Water, by December 31, 2028. The Bonanza Solar and Storage project, located in Clark County, Nevada, will have a total capacity of 300 MWac solar PV along with a 195 MW 4-hour BESS.

Located on federal land in the southern Nevada desert, the Project expects to create approximately 500 jobs during the peak construction phase. Recognizing the importance of protecting wildlife, habitat, and other environmental resources, the Bonanza Solar and Storage project is collaborating closely with federal and state agencies to minimize project impacts.

“We are delighted to extend our successful partnership with SCPPA, which has been ongoing for over a decade, to expand the availability of renewable energy and support their decarbonization commitment for member communities,” said Sohinaz Sotoudeh, Vice President – West Origination and Power Marketing for EDF Renewables. “We look forward to future opportunities that will advance SCPPA’s goals of achieving carbon-free energy in Southern California.”
