December 7 (Renewables Now) - Shell Energy North America US LP has agreed to buy up to 100 MW of electricity from a California wind project being developed by Terra-Gen LLC.
Shell said on Thursday it has signed a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with Coachella Hills Wind LLC for the project with the same name. The scheme, located in Palm Springs, is a repowering of the existing Coachella Flats and Painted Hills wind farms. The repowering of the facilities is expected to be completed on December 1, 2020.
Terra-Gen and Shell are already partnering under a PPA for a 130-MW wind project in Tehachapi, California, which was signed last year. New York-based renewable energy company Terra-Gen is meanwhile a joint venture partner with Shell WindEnergy Inc, part of Shell New Energies, providing integration solutions for onshore wind assets in Palm Springs.
