Avangrid Renewables to Sell Wind Energy to CalChoice

Avangrid Renewables, part of Spain’s IBERDROLA Group, and the California Choice Energy Authority, have signed three new power purchase agreements for wind energy from Avangrid Renewables’ Mountain View III Wind Farm in Palm Springs, California.

CalChoice will buy the entire output of the 22.44-MW wind farm, powered by 34 Vestas turbines, starting in 2021 on behalf of three of its members: Apple Valley Choice Energy (AVCE), the Rancho Mirage Energy Authority (RMEA), and Lancaster Choice Energy (LCE).

The project sits adjacent to RMEA’s service territory and relatively close to the LCE and AVCE customer bases. The Mountain View III Wind Farm output will allow these CalChoice members to continue offering voluntary service options that provide customers with the opportunity to purchase up to 100 percent renewable energy from local and regional generating resources, and will facilitate compliance with California’s renewable energy policy.

 “We are committed to pursuing clean, locally situated energy supply options for our members, and the Mountain View III Wind Farm was a perfect fit in this regard.” noted CalChoice Executive Director Jason Caudle.

The Mountain View III Wind Farm generates approximately 70,000 MWh per year, enough to power more than 8,000 typical California homes annually. That amount of carbon-free energy is the approximate equivalent of 78 million avoided vehicle miles per year.
