PG&E Adds Utility-Scale Solar Projects to Its Power Mix

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has entered into agreements with two developers of utility-scale photovoltaic solar power: Cleantech America LLC and GreenVolts, Inc. The agreements will deliver up to seven megawatts (MW) of utility-scale renewable solar energy for PG&E’s customers throughout Northern and Central California. Cleantech America’s CalRENEW-1 project, located near PG&E’s Mendota substation in Fresno County, will provide PG&E with five megawatts of energy and will represent one of the largest photovoltaic facilities in the United States. The GreenVolts GV1 solar plant, to be located on eight acres in Tracy, California, will provide PG&E’s customers with an additional two megawatts of renewable power. Under the agreements, the projects will be completed in 2009.
