EDP Renewables SA through its fully owned subsidiary EDP Renewables North America LLC and Shell Energy North America LP have closed on a 15-year power purchase agreement for 200 MW that will bring the Sandrini Solar Park to Kern County, California. This PPA was announced by EDPR on October 25, 2019. Mr Glenn Wright, President of Shell Energy North America said that “We are proud to enable the development of the Sandrini Solar Park. This opportunity will increase the supply of renewable power in California while simultaneously reducing Shell’s carbon footprint. We recognize that customers and communities are demanding a shift in the way power is generated and we are adapting to the demand for more clean energy solutions.”

Located near Bakersfield, the 200 MW Sandrini Solar Park, which is anticipated to be operational in 2022, represents an estimated capital investment of more than USD 200 million and will generate enough clean electricity to annually power more than 91,000 average California homes. The project will also bring a myriad of economic benefits to Californians through payments to local landowners and governments, job opportunities during construction and operations, and an increase in money spent at local businesses in the vicinity of the solar park. Sandrini Solar Park will also save approximately 353 million gallons of water a year.

In addition to being Sandrini’s sole energy offtaker through the long-term PPA, SENA will also purchase 100 percent of the environmental attributes, including the renewable energy credits and capacity.
