The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has approved two renewable energy contracts for Southern California Edison (SCE).

The Granite Wind project is being co-developed by Renewable Energy Systems Americas Development, RENEWergy LLC and G.H. Energy Ltd. It will be a new 42 MW wind facility with the potential to expand to 81 MW.

The FSE Blythe project, which is being developed by First Solar Inc., will be a new 7.5 MW solar photovoltaic facility with the potential to expand to 21 MW.

The CPUC determined that both project prices are at or below the commission's market pricing benchmark and are reasonable.
