Primergy Solar is in the process of creating a 400-megawatt solar and storage project for California CCA

Primergy Solar, a developer, owner, and operator of utility-scale solar and energy storage projects, has secured a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with San Diego Community Power (SDCP) for the entire capacity of its 400-MWAC and 1.6-GWh energy storage facility, Purple Sage Energy Center.

SDCP, California’s second-largest Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) catering to nearly 1 million customers, will receive renewable energy and attributes through a long-term power offtake agreement upon the project’s anticipated launch in 2027.

“The agreement with SDCP represents a significant milestone in the development of Purple Sage Energy Center,” stated Primergy CEO Ty Daul. “The combination of solar energy with substantial battery storage is crucial for ensuring grid stability and establishing a dependable, dispatchable energy source. We take pride in the enduring partnerships forged during this project and eagerly anticipate supplying carbon-free energy to the grid.”

Positioned in Nevada, between Las Vegas and the California border, Purple Sage Energy Center benefits from an ideal solar power location due to its proximity to grid demand and abundant sunlight. Primergy collaborates with the Bureau of Land Management to establish new standards for enhancing the siting, design, and construction of renewable energy facilities.

“The direct support from Purple Sage Energy Center bolsters San Diego Community Power’s mission to offer clean, reliable, and cost-effective energy to our customers,” remarked Karin Burns, CEO of SDCP. “This partnership with Primergy reaffirms our dedication to achieving our ambitious renewable energy targets while investing in a project that harmonizes environmental and community advantages to advance the transition to clean energy.”

Upon completion, Purple Sage Energy Center is projected to produce over 1.2 million MWh of carbon-free solar energy annually, sufficient to supply electricity to more than 100,000 homes each year.

Throughout the project’s lifespan, an estimated $90 million in additional local tax contributions are anticipated. These contributions will directly support local schools and furnish Clark County with significant resources that can be allocated towards enhancing public safety, upgrading roads, and improving infrastructure.
