Holland & Hart Represents Southern California Public Power Authority in Geysers Geothermal PPA

Holland & Hart served as lead counsel to the Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) on behalf of its member Pasadena Water and Power in a power purchase agreement of geothermal energy from the Geysers Geothermal Complex. SCPPA is a Joint Powers Authority created to provide joint planning, financing, construction, and operation of transmission and generation projects on behalf of eleven municipal utilities and one irrigation district that supply 16% of California’s power.

This power purchase agreement will provide clean and reliable electricity to the City of Pasadena’s electric customers starting in 2027 and will help the city meet its renewable energy goals. This agreement provides for 25 MW of capacity over a contract term of fifteen years.

Holland & Hart’s transactional team was led by Denver-based partner Leslie Boyle, with the assistance from Bethanie Wallace and Eric Wolaver.
