SCE expands renewable energy partnership with Calpine

Rosemead, CA, April 13, 2007 — Southern California Edison (SCE) has reached agreement with renewable energy generator Calpine to purchase 225 megawatt (MW) of geothermal energy. The generation would come from Calpine’s Geysers facilities in California’s Sonoma and Lake counties.

If approved by the California Public Utilities Commission, the agreement would replace an existing contract and provide SCE customers with renewable energy for 10 years. The contract also increases Calpine’s electricity deliveries by 25 MW. Additionally, a new SCE-Calpine agreement provides 714 MW from the Pastoria Energy Facility of “resource adequacy,” a California regulatory requirement that utilities ensure adequate generating resources exist to meet customer demand.
