Central Coast Community Energy and Silicon Valley Clean Energy Joint Renewable Energy Agreements

CCCE, in partnership with Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) announced on July 19th the addition of seven new large-scale renewable energy and storage agreements as part of CCCE’s pathway to 100% clean and renewable energy by 2030. This most recent round of agreements exceeds CCCE’s interim goal of 60% clean and renewable by 2025. CCCE is rapidly accelerating GHG reduction on behalf of our Central Coast customers.
CCCE is doing its part to increase grid reliability and resiliency by adding a diverse set of renewable sources to the grid and pairing them with storage. Please see infographic for recent agreement details. 
CCCE has made important strides to accelerate renewable energy in a reliable and economical way. By partnering with SVCE to improve our purchasing power, forming California Community Power with other CCAs to further improve our purchasing power, earning an ‘A’ Credit Rating by S&P Global, and by removing the obligation to fund a ‘lock box’ to backstop our power purchase agreements, CCCE is reducing overhead and keeping costs in check for our customers. And we’re proving that. affordable, clean and renewable community energy is possible.

Central Coast Community Energy Requests Bids for Local Energy Storage Resiliency Projects

CCCE intends to deploy local energy storage projects throughout the Central Coast as part of its procurement effort to develop “front of the meter” (FoTM) grid-connected energy storage between 1 and 5 Mega Watts (MW) allowing Central Coast Community Energy to shift the availability of renewable energy from mid-day to peak demand evening hours. 

 

Central Coast Community Energy expects to select or pre-qualify one or more energy storage developers through the Local Energy Storage Resiliency Project RFQ and looks forward to sparking conversations with developers regarding potential sites and projects within our Central Coast service area. Pre-qualified vendors will be provided a list of potential sites, based on the agency’s own independent assessment and outreach. Central Coast Community Energy plans to host an RFQ Respondents Webinar on July 13, 2021, at 1pm and the deadline for developers to submit their proposal is August 2, 2021, at 5PM.
