Spower in California

California

The California sPower story began when the company was founded. We have created large-scale investments in local communities there through the development of approximately three-quarters of our operating portfolio. Our involvement ranges from partnerships with every community choice aggregation program, to Union and Labor, to the future development of our first standalone battery storage project. These relationships and projects allow us to realize California as a place that nurtures remarkable opportunity for increased production of renewable energy.

A large portion of our California operating portfolio has been made possible on account of our partnership with the City of Lancaster. Beginning in 2010, our involvement in Lancaster has reduced unemployment by nearly 3 percent and allowed us to invest more than $1.6 billion in the local area. We look at partnerships such as the one we have fostered with Lancaster as a template for future expansion within California and outside of the state.

Our development in Lancaster and throughout the state has demanded a wide variety of skill sets and a need for high-quality labor. The unmatched expertise provided by California Labor Unions has allowed us to meet these needs. We see our relationship with these Unions as one of a symbiotic nature, our projects can create hundreds of jobs for union members and union members can provide us with the necessary labor for project success.

We have more than 3,500 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy projects on the horizon in California and continue to work to help the state meet its renewable energy goals. As the number of renewably generated megawatts increases, we see a priority in evolving our technology to meet the grid reliability needs of the state. To do so, we have placed an increased focus on battery storage, as a standalone asset and paired with wind and solar generation resources. As we continue to operate and seek opportunities for new development in the state of California, sPower will continue to stand by our commitment to provide clean and sustainable energy, create careers for community members, and invest in local outreach funds that directly impact education and local businesses. This commitment strives to continually evolve our technology and practices to meet the needs of our customers, the communities in which we operate, and those who are a part of the sPower team.
