November 24 (Renewables Now) - Plant-powered laundry detergents and cleaners producer ECOS announced today it has subscribed to a portion of the 3-MW Sheep Creek community solar farm in El Mirage, California.

Headquartered in Cypress, California, ECOS has been a carbon-neutral manufacturer since 2013, purchasing renewable energy certificates (RECs) to cover the entire consumption of its California facility.

Sheep Creek, which is owned and operated by Catalyze, will feed electricity into the California electrical grid via Southern California Edison (SCE) infrastructure. It has a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) via SCE’s Community Renewables Program, according to information on Catalyze's website.

The subscription was made possible through Ampion Renewable Energy, a public benefit corporation that connects residents and businesses to local solar farms. Ampion has an existing partnership with Catalyze.
