Gas-Fired Plant Helps Customers Reduce Emissions by 11%
Calpine has announced an agreement to provide Marin Clean Energy (MCE) with generation from its Delta Energy Center that will reduce MCE’s CO2 emissions by 11 percent. MCE is a community choice aggregator in Northern California that offers customers retail electricity products composed of 50 or 100 percent renewable energy.
Previously, MCE had procured the non-renewable portion of its product from “unspecified” sources. Under the agreement, MCE will purchase power directly from Calpine’s Delta Energy Center, an 835 MW combined-cycle natural gas (CCNG) plant in Pittsburg, California. Much like hybrid vehicles in the transportation industry, CCNG facilities burn fuel very efficiently, making it a clean source of power that reduces per-kWh operating costs.
