Clean Power Alliance is now receiving energy from the Estrella project, located in the Antelope Valley area of unincorporated Los Angeles County, that will serve CPA customers throughout Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
Estrella is a 56-megawatt solar photovoltaic generating facility combined with 28 megawatts of battery storage, serving as an essential component of CPA’s renewable energy strategy.
The facility was built by AES and will generate enough energy to power 23,500 homes in CPA’s service area each year. The added clean energy capacity helps prevent nearly 90 million pounds of harmful greenhouse gas emissions, which is equivalent to taking 9,000 gasoline-powered cars off the road.
Estrella will provide enough electricity to serve 1.4% of CPA’s electrical load under a 15-year power purchase agreement and is valuable to our local communities not only for the energy supply it will deliver to CPA customers for at least the next 16 years but also for the 200 local union jobs it created during construction.
