EDF Renewables North America has signed a PPA with California utility Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) for part of the offtake of a solar-plus-storage project in neighbouring Nevada with a 780MWh BESS.

The Bonanza project will combine PV generation and a 195MW 4-hour battery energy storage system (BESS). Of this capacity, 125MWac of electricity generation capacity, and 65MW of the BESS capacity, will be sold to SCPPA by the end of 2028.

“Bonanza adds to SCPPA’s current portfolio of renewable energy projects, bringing the total to over 3,000MWs that will be supplied through SCPPA to Southern California Public Power Utilities to support their transition to a carbon-free energy future,” said Michael Webster, SCPPA executive director.

EDF Renewables first applied for permission to build the project in late 2020, and plans to complete the permitting process by the end of 2025. The developer is yet to complete three permitting processes, including producing an environmental impact statement and compliance with endangered species legislation, but the signing of a PPA suggests both EDF Renewables and SCPPA are optimistic that the project will receive a green light from the Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management.
