Two of these contracts went to San Diego County. The first 7 MW contract was with Northlight Power, while the second 20 MW contract was with Silverado Power, LLC.
The third project will be built in Kern County and it will have a total of 20 MW. The contract was signed with E.ON Climate and Renewables, LLC.
Furthermore, SDG&E signed two contracts for a total of 14.7 MW with TerraGen Development Company, LLC for two wind projects located in Kern and Riverside Counties.
For the second year in a row, SDG&E surpassed the 20% mark in renewable power in the energy mix. In 2012, approximately 20.3% of the energy delivered to retail customers was provided by renewable energy sources, such as wind, geothermal, biomass, hydroelectric and solar facilities.
Over the past two years, the utility company has added a total of 1.75 GW of renewable generation capacity. These contracts put SDG&E in a position to fulfill California's 20% renewable portfolio requirements in the 2011-2013 timeframe and will help achieve the 25% renewable power requirement by 2016.
Meanwhile, its first utility-scale solar park of 26 MW went online last February in San Diego County.
