California community choice aggregator East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) has entered into its first geothermal power purchase agreement with Fervo Energy, a geothermal energy company.

Supplies will come from a project that will dispatch 40 megawatts of geothermal energy from Churchill County, Nevada to California’s regional grid, with expected operation in the fourth quarter of 2026. 

Serving Alameda County and fourteen incorporated cities, EBCE offers a power mix of carbon-free and renewable energy sources including wind, solar, hydro, and geothermal, with a goal of providing 100 percent clean electric service for its customers by 2030.
