Shell Energy North America (US) L.P., ("Shell Energy") and Coachella Hills Wind LLC recently signed a long-term Power Purchase Agreement to procure up to 100 MW of wind energy from the Coachella Hills Wind project being developed by Terra-Gen, LLC.

The Coachella Hills Wind project, in Palm Springs, CA, represents a repowering of the existing Coachella Flats and Painted Hills wind projects with an anticipated online date of December 1st, 2020.

"Terra-Gen is pleased to announce the development of its Coachella Hills Wind project and its continued relationship with Shell Energy," said Jim Pagano, Chief Executive Officer, Terra-Gen. "Coachella Hills will provide a positive impact for local businesses and county revenues while helping California meet its carbon reduction goals."

Coachella is the second California wind project where Terra-Gen and Shell Energy have executed a power purchase agreement. The first project, signed in 2017, was a 130 MW greenfield wind project known as Voyager II located in Tehachapi, California.

Terra-Gen and Shell WindEnergy Inc., part of Shell New Energies, are also joint venture partners providing additional integration capabilities to California onshore wind assets in Palm Springs.
