SVCE supplies clean electricity from renewable and carbon-free sources to more than 270,000 residential and commercial customers in 13 Santa Clara County jurisdictions. Silicon Valley Clean Energy drives innovative solutions to combat climate change by decarbonising the grid, transport and buildings. SVCE signed a 15 year contract for 100 MW solar capacity and 25 MW battery storage capacity from the Victory Pass project.

“The Victory Pass project not only offers solar power capacity, but is of great value with the 4 hour discharge battery pairing. As the California summers continue to bring extreme heat and high electricity demands, the ability to dissipate energy during peak periods is critical to the transition to a clean grid, ”said Girish Balachandran, CEO of SVCE.

Central Coast Community Energy sources clean and renewable energy on behalf of 400,000 residential and commercial customers in 33 Central Coast communities. In addition to renewable and storage projects, CCCE accelerates the electrification of transport, building and agricultural machinery and at the same time strengthens energy resilience. CCCE signed a 15 year contract for 100 MW solar capacity and 25 MW battery storage capacity from the Victory Pass project.

Victory Pass, along with Clearways Arica Project, is part of a larger solar and storage complex in Riverside County. When completed, the entire renewable energy complex will generate enough clean power to power approximately 132,000 households and represents an investment of 689 million. During construction, more than 1,000 jobs will be created and the larger solar and storage complex will be replenished employ several full-time positions upon commissioning.

Clearway is one of the largest renewable energy companies in the state with approximately 1,700 MW of operating renewable energy assets owned by its public subsidiary. Victory Pass will expand Clearway’s presence in Riverside County, where the company owns and operates 180 MW of solar capacity.

Construction of the Siegespass is scheduled to begin in 2022.
