Ava’s goal is to buy power from renewable energy facilities in California that are built to supply our customers. Toward that end, in 2019, Ava signed nine contracts to develop wind, solar, and energy storage projects that are now being built in California to serve Ava customers specifically. Ava continues to expand the portfolio of projects that will provide our local energy customers with greener power at lower rates. A list of our contracted facilities is below. We will update this table periodically, and plan to include photos and video of the projects in their various stages of development.

Building more renewable energy power plants also allows Ava to seamlessly transition more of our community onto our Renewable 100 service plan, and to meet our goal of 100% carbon free electricity for all customers by 2030.
