Alameda Municipal Power Secures 12-Year Renewable Energy Agreement for Clean Geothermal Power
ALAMEDA, CA. -- On February 13, 2023 Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is pleased to announce that it has secured a long-term purchase agreement with the Northern California Power Agency (NCPA) and the Geysers Power Company, LLC, (Geysers) an indirect subsidiary of Calpine Corporation, that reinforces AMP’s commitment to 100% clean power for all Alameda residents and businesses.
Under this agreement, AMP will procure and deliver up to 5 megawatts (MW’s) of clean, renewable energy produced from the Geysers geothermal power plants located in California’s Sonoma and Lake Counties for a period of 12 years beginning in 2025.
