Desert Community Energy Signs Local Wind Power Agreements for the City of Palm Springs

Updated: Jul 27

Desert Community Energy (DCE), the new electricity generation

provider for the City of Palm Springs, is fulfilling its promise to provide

customers with locally supplied, carbon free energy with the signing of three

multi-million dollar, long-term agreements with Terra-Gen, LLC to

purchase power from their local wind farms. Representatives from

DCE, the City of Palm Springs and Terra-Gen ceremonially signed

the agreements underneath a 500-foot wind turbine. As a locally

controlled not-for-profit community choice energy program, DCE is

delivering on it’s mission to reinvest revenues into the community,

create jobs and help develop more local renewable energy sources in

the Coachella Valley. The three Terra-Gen wind projects are all

located within Palm Springs city limits and will provide significant costsavings

and rate certainty. At the same time the agreement helps

Palm Springs’ residents and businesses do their part to save the

planet by combatting climate change and reducing greenhouse gas

emissions. Since DCE started serving Palm Springs customers in

April 2020, the community has dramatically cut its carbon footprint,

which would be the equivalent impact of taking 20,000 cars off the

road. BRC has provided marketing, public relations and community outreach services to DCE since it

s launch in 2018.
