In growing importance of renewables in its asset portfolio, Shell has now signed up a PPA to secure solar power from a 200 MW facility in the US through its wholesale energy marketer in North America, SENA.
- EDP Renewables North America gets 15-year solar PPA with Shell New Energy North America
- It will supply power generated by the 200 MW Sandrini Solar Park in Kern County, California
- The $200 million project will also sell 100% of its renewable energy credits and capacity to Shell once it comes online in 2022

Oil major Royal Dutch Shell’s wholesale energy marketer in North America, Shell Energy North America (SENA) will purchase solar power from a 200 MW PV project in Kern County, California from Portuguese utility EDP’s renewables arm EDP Renewables under a 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA) signed between these companies.
To be constructed for an estimated amount of over $200 million, the 200 MW Sandrini Solar Park is expected to come online in 2022 when it will also sell 100% of its renewable energy credits and capacity to SENA.
“This opportunity will increase the supply of renewable power in California while simultaneously reducing Shell’s carbon footprint,” said President of SENA Glenn Wright. “We recognize that customers and communities are demanding a shift in the way power is generated and we are adapting to the demand for more clean energy solutions.”
SENA currently claims to be ranked within the top three gas and power marketers in the region, selling 270 million MWh of clean power annually managing over 10 GW of power generation capacity, more than a third of which comes from renewables as hydro, solar and wind.
A year back in November 2018 SENA had signed a PPA for 100 MW capacity out of 500 MW Palen Solar Power Project of EDF Renewables (see EDF Renewables Signs PPA For 100 MW In California).
SENA will also share renewable energy attributes from Longroad Energy’s 379 MW Prospero Solar Project in Andrews County in Texas along with Facebook (see Facebook Signs Solar PPA For 122 MW Project).
