Clearway completes massive solar + storage complex in Riverside, California


Clearway Energy Group announced on April 17 that the Victory Pass and Arica solar and storage projects in Riverside County, California, have been placed in service. The projects’ combined capacity of 463 MW solar and 186 MW battery storage will generate enough electricity to power 205,000 homes.

“We are delighted to bring online the Victory Pass and Arica solar and energy storage complex and begin providing cost-competitive clean energy for California homes and businesses with these projects,” said Valerie Wooley, SVP of Origination at Clearway. “This pair of solar and storage projects will enhance the state’s energy grid by providing reliable power when it’s needed most. We are immensely grateful to the eight Victory Pass and Arica customers, whose long-term commitments to procuring clean, reliable energy made this all possible.”

Victory Pass is contracted with Silicon Valley Clean Energy (SVCE) and Central Coast Community Energy (3CE). Arica is contracted with Clean Power Alliance (CPA), Peninsula Clean Energy(PCE), MCE, Southern California Edison (SCE), an affiliate of NRG Energy, Inc., and PepsiCo (NASDAQ: PEP).

“Increasing our 24/7 renewable power capabilities is critical to helping our region address a rapidly changing climate,” said Peninsula Clean Energy CEO Shawn Marshall. “This project helps us by producing and storing emission-free solar power that can be used day or night throughout the year.”

Together, Arica and Victory Pass represent a $1 billion investment in Riverside County. In addition, over the life of the projects, Arica and Victory Pass will contribute a combined $25.8 million in taxes that support local schools, hospitals, emergency response and other public services. During construction, the projects created 1,000 union jobs and will support a permanent workforce throughout operations.

These projects add to Clearway’s footprint in Riverside County, where the company now has over 1.2 GW of operating renewable and storage assets across five utility-scale solar projects and four distributed solar installations, in addition to the Arica and Victory Pass solar and storage complex.
