New Projects Include CPA’s Largest Solar and Storage Project to Date

Los Angeles, CA–In the wake of high heat and statewide Flex Alerts, Clean Power Alliance (CPA) advanced two new solar plus storage projects that will increase California’s grid reliability. The CPA Board of Directors approved the Rexford 1 Solar & Storage Center and Chalan Solar plus Storage projects last Thursday.

The two projects will add a combined 365 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy capacity and 205 MW of battery storage to CPA’s long-term portfolio, generating enough electricity to power 158,000 Southern California homes,  approximately 8.5% of CPA’s overall demand, with 100% carbon-free energy. With these projects, CPA continues to surpass California’s ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction mandates by adding new in-state renewable energy sources and reliable evening peak capacity to the state’s electricity grid.

CPA plans to continue its expansion of clean energy and storage supply with additional projects currently under negotiation through
