September 8 (Renewables Now) - Community choice aggregation (CCA) agency Peninsula Clean Energy announced on Tuesday that it has entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) for a 35-MW portion of The Geysers geothermal complex run by Calpine Corporation in California.

The contract will become effective in July 2022.

Peninsula Clean Energy said that this is its first PPA to involve geothermal energy. The CCA is currently the official electricity provider for San Mateo County and, starting next year, for the City of Los Banos. It says its ultimate goal is to deliver 24/7 renewable power to its customers.

The Geysers is a 725-MW complex consisting of 15 geothermal power plants that stretch across 45 square miles in Sonoma and Lake Counties.
