San Diego Gas & Eelectric (SDG&E) has signed a renewable energy contract securing 7.5 MW of wind energy from Coram Energy LLC of Tehachapi, Calif. An application has been filed with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The Coram Energy facility is located in the Tehachapi Pass in Kern County, Calif., and began generating wind energy in June 2005.
The utility has also signed and submitted for approval a second 20-year power purchase agreement with an LS Power subsidiary to procure up to 45 MW of solar energy from the proposed Centinela Solar Energy facility.
These two new contracts combined add another 52.5 MW of renewable energy generated in California to SDG&E's portfolio. Both contracts require CPUC approval.
