California is a state that possesses great renewable potential due to the vast hours of sunlight the region receives each year. A landmark achievement was met in May 2022, when the area produced enough green energy to meet 103% of consumer demand. Despite the number of solar assets located in the state, a significant investment is required to increase the amount of storage capacity. In this article, we will discuss three developers based in California that offer PPAs.
