Peninsula Clean Energy is a Community Choice Aggregation agency and the official electricity provider for San Mateo County and for the City of Los Banos in California. Peninsula Clean Energy will begin receiving power for 15 years in 2026 from Pattern Energy’s SunZia Wind project in New Mexico, which will be the largest wind farm in the Western Hemisphere. The 220MW of renewable energy will supply 13 percent of the agency’s total annual electricity demand.

Peninsula Clean Energy is the first Community Choice Aggregation agency to sign a contract to receive power from the SunZia Wind project, which in total will generate up to 3,515 MW of nameplate wind power serving the western United States grid.

“SunZia Wind supercharges our plan to deliver 24/7 affordable renewable power in the near future,” Peninsula Clean Energy CEO Shawn Marshall said. “By providing reliable power whether or not the sun is shining, this contract is a gamechanger toward meeting our hourly renewable power matching goal than any other long-term power contract we have signed to date.”

“This project represents a series of firsts for Peninsula Clean Energy and the larger utility sector,” said Rick DeGolia, Atherton council member and chair of Peninsula Clean Energy’s board of directors. “As the agency’s largest wind contract, it will continue to advance PCE as an industry leader in procuring reliable renewable power that is responsive to our load shape and reliability requirements.”
