Construction in Mammoth Lakes, CA is underway for the new, state-of-the-art Casa Diablo IV geothermal project being developed by Ormat Technologies in partnership with CCCE and SVCE. This geothermal project is the first within California ISO balancing authority area in 30 years! Geothermal is an important part of CCCE’s pathway to 100% renewable energy as it provides a constant, renewable power source that is available 24/7, unlike solar and wind which are intermittent. Central Coast Community Energy and Silicon Valley Clean Energy together will receive 14 MW.
Casa Diablo IV is expected to provide 30 MW of electricity, enough to power 22,000 homes and offset 160,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually. The project is estimated to bring over $13 MM in economic benefits to the Mammoth Lakes region and create more than 180 construction jobs. Read more about the project in CCCE’s press release and share our announcement post on Twitter and Facebook.
