This project is producing enough renewable electricity to power nearly 65,000 San José homes annually.
This emission-free power will have the same climate impact as taking more than 670,000 cars off the road.
To meet the fixed delivery obligation, Terra-Gen has built an oversized solar array plus battery storage.
Projects like this help reduce reliance on natural gas plants by providing renewables during more hours of the day. This in turn will improve air quality and support better respiratory health.
In 2022, our standard service contains 60% renewable energy, nearly twice the state average. Reducing emissions from electricity is a key component of Climate Smart San José, the city’s climate action plan.
San José recently pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030. SJCE will play a critical role.
San José Mayor Sam Liccardo and SJCE Director Lori Mitchell unveiled this project live on February 2, 2022. Watch the livestream. A Facebook account is not required to watch.
