Sonoma Clean Power Signs Two Renewable Energy Projects in Petaluma

Sonoma Clean Power Signs Two Renewable Energy Projects in Petaluma

Solar Projects Add 2 Megawatts of Sonoma County Solar

Sonoma Clean Power (SCP) has signed two new power purchase agreements (PPAs) through their ProFIT program, which was designed to fulfill the agency’s goal of promoting the development of renewable energy in Sonoma County by creating a market for private landowners to sell electricity to SCP. 

Both PPAs represent solar projects located in rural Petaluma, and will add two megawatts of Sonoma County solar. “The solar generated by these two projects will be added to the mix of 100% local, renewable energy served to our EverGreen customers,” said SCP CEO Geof Syphers. “Right now, all of the energy delivered to EverGreen customers is generated by geothermal energy from the Geysers. Adding local solar to the mix has been one of our goals,” Syphers added.

The solar photovoltaic (PV) projects will provide enough power for 600 Sonoma County homes once completed. Completion of both projects is expected in the fall of this year. 

“It’s great to have additional Sonoma County solar being developed in our community,” said Petaluma City Councilmember and SCP Board Member, Dave King. “SCP’s ProFIT program enables landowners to contribute to the renewable energy supply in the county, and earn money while doing so,” he added. 

Sonoma Clean Power is a not-for-profit pubic agency, and is the official electricity provider for Sonoma County, offering cleaner electricity to residential and commercial customers in all participating Sonoma County cities and the unincorporated areas of the county.
