One More Solar Contract for LADWP


Sempra U.S. Gas and Power announced this week that Los Angeles and Burbank are going to buy solar power from a 250 MW plant in Boulder City, NV.

The price? According to the city attorney, via this contract (pdf) LADWP will be getting 1.9% of its power from an emission free, global-warming fighting, peak generating resource for the low low price of 9.5 cents/kWh.

For a utility that still gets 41% of its power from coal, this is great news.

On a related note, readers may have noticed that there is a lot of solar development happening in Boulder City, NV. Why? The free beer must have something to do with it.

Vote Solar is a non-profit grassroots organization working to fight climate change and foster economic opportunity by bringing solar energy into the mainstream.
