EDF Renewables has signed a 15-year power purchase agreement with Los Angeles-area electricity provider Clean Power Alliance for the Desert Quartzite Solar+Storage project.
The Desert Quartzite Solar+Storage project consists of a 300-megawatt solar farm and a 600 MWh battery energy storage system. The agreement will provide enough electricity to power more than 163,000 homes and avoid 669,000 metric tons of carbon emissions annually.
The project is expected to begin delivering clean electricity in Feb. 2024. The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to mandate 100% clean energy by 2035.
