Utility-scale solar and energy storage company Primergy announced that it signed a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with San Diego Community Power (SDCP) for the full offtake of its 400 MWac and 1.6 GWh battery energy storage facility, the Purple Sage Energy Center.

Once completed, Purple Sage Energy Center is expected to generate over 1.2 million MWh of solar energy annually. Additionally, over the project’s lifetime, Primergy said the project is expected to create approximately $90 million in additional local tax payments.

Purple Sage Energy Center is in Nevada, between Las Vegas and the California border. The offtake agreement is expected to begin at the project’s scheduled delivery start in 2027.

SDCP is California’s second largest Community Choice Aggregator (CCA), serving nearly 1 million customers.
