Southern California Edison (SCE), a Rosemead, Calif.-headquartered electric utility, has signed and will submit to the California Public Utilities Commission seven new long-term contracts with independent renewable energy generators.

The agreements, which secure a potential of 324 MW of clean power from wind energy, geothermal and biomass, were made in response to SCE's 2005 competitive renewable solicitation. These contracts help SCE reach its goal of having at least 20% of its power deliveries under agreement with renewable energy suppliers (currently the company serves between 16% and 17%).

Among the winning bidders, which are all located in California, are Coso Clean Power, Little Lake; MM Tajiguas Energy, Goleta; Imperial Valley Resource Recovery Co., Imperial Valley; Caithness, Tehachapi; and Ridgetop Energy, Mojave. Caithness and Ridgetop each have two contracts with SCE.
