AES has secured $2bn non-recourse financing for its 1,384MW Southland repowering project in Southern California, US.

The project comprises 1,284MW of combined cycle gas-fired generation and 100MW of battery-based energy storage.

AES' president and chief executive officer (CEO) Andrés Gluski said: “The $2.3bn Southland repowering project is a key component of our strategic objective of increasing our US Dollar-based, long-term contracted position.

“This project will provide Californians with clean and reliable energy by integrating 1,284MW of efficient combined-cycle natural gas generation with 100MW of advanced battery-based energy storage.”

"This project will provide Californians with clean and reliable energy."

In 2014, Southern California Edison (SCE) awarded 20-year power purchase agreements (PPA) to AES for the project through a competitive bidding process. Under the PPAs, SCE will purchase the total power generated by the project from AES. The fee will cover AES' fixed operating costs, debt service, and return on capital for the Southland repowering project.
