CPUC Approves PG&E's Solar Power Contracts

LCG, August 21, 2009--The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) yesterday approved two, 25-year power purchase agreements (PPAs) between Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and BrightSource Energy for power generated at two solar-thermal stations planned in California.

BrightSource Energy uses a solar thermal design that employs thousands of mirrors that track the sun and reflect the light to a boiler raised on a tower. The concentrated energy creates superheated steam, which is piped to a traditional steam turbine-generator set.

The initial project is the Ivanpah Solar Power Complex, located approximately 50 miles northwest of Needles, California in the Mojave Desert. The 110-MW solar facility is scheduled to commence operations by July 2012.

A second, 200-MW solar-thermal station is scheduled to begin operations by July 2013.

California passed a Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Program that requires utilities like PG&E to increase their electric supply procurement of eligible renewable generating resources by one percent of load per year, with a 20 percent renewables target by the end of 2010 and a 33 percent target by the end of 2020.
