Calpine Corporation and Marin Clean Energy Sign Agreement to Displace System Power Purchases with Local, Affordable Energy

Calpine Corporation and Marin Clean Energy (MCE) announced a new three-year agreement under which Calpine will deliver electric energy from Calpine’s Delta Energy Center and other of its Northern California facilities through 2017. These facilities are part of Calpine’s next generation of reduced-emission power plants fueled by natural gas. This agreement will help support 25 full-time jobs at Calpine’s Delta Energy Center and will also supply enough electric power to serve the average energy requirements of approximately 98,000 residential customers during the contract term. By switching from unspecified power sources to cleaner generating alternatives, such as Calpine’s Delta Energy Center, MCE will achieve an approximate 11% reduction in attributed carbon emissions for each MWh delivered by Calpine to MCE.
