|“Calpine and The Geysers are elated to support Clean Power Alliance’s renewable energy goals by providing green, reliable geothermal energy to your customers across Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.” stated Gevan Reeves, Vice President, Origination, Calpine Corporation.

The Geysers’ contract follows closely on the heels of CPA’s recent announcement of a 15-year contract with Ormat Technologies Inc.’s Heber South Geothermal facility located in Imperial Valley, CA. Once the Heber South contract takes effect January 1, 2022, the facility will add 14 MW of renewable energy to CPA’s portfolio. This is enough energy to power 5,752 homes for a year and eliminate 8,911 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions for a year.
