The three wind deals include a seven-year extension of an existing 150 MW wind project in Solano County with Avangrid Renewables. A second deal calls for additional eight years with Shell Energy North America (US) for half of the capacity and renewable energy generated by the existing 130MW wind project near Mojave. The final source will be half of the expected 60MW generated for 20 years from this project being repowered by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources near Bakersfield in Kern County.
The repowering includes replacing 157 existing turbines with 11 new turbines for Peninsula Clean Energy's portion and expected to be operational by September 2021.
The additional wind generation will supplement solar generation -- including supply from the newly commissioned 200MW Wright Solar and 100MW Mustang Two Whirlaway projects.
