San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has signed two new power purchase agreements (PPAs) with TerraGen Development Co. LLC for a total of 14.7 MW of wind energy.

The two wind projects are located in Kern and Riverside counties, Calif. SDG&E notes that it has signed 36 renewable contracts totaling over 1.75 GW of generation capacity over the past two years, putting the utility in a position to maintain California's 20% renewable portfolio standard (RPS) requirements in the 2011-to-2013 time frame and meet the 33% by 2020 RPS mandate.

"After starting with less than one percent renewable energy in 2002, SDG&E put an aggressive course of action in place to obtain competitively priced renewable power for our customers to meet California's renewable requirements," says James P. Avery, SDG&E senior vice president of power supply. "This has resulted in a well-balanced renewable portfolio that encompasses a broad spectrum of energy sources, including solar, wind, biomass, biogas and geothermal energy."
