CALGARY, AB, Aug. 6, 2020 /CNW/ - RWE Renewables, the newest subsidiary of RWE Group, and Direct Energy Business, part of Direct Energy, one of North America's largest energy and energy-related services providers, and a subsidiary of Centrica plc, today announced they have signed a long-term agreement to purchase 25 MW of electrical output and associated capacity from RWE's Canadian Hull solar plant.  The photovoltaic plant, located in Southern Alberta'sTaber county, started commercial operation recently and will now provide an important part of the electricity that Direct Energy Business needs to supply its Canadian customers with renewable electricity.

"With increased customer demand for renewables, the addition of 25 MW of solar supply will help Direct Energy Business build renewable power options for our customers and affirms our commitment to provide products and services that lead to a lower carbon future," said David Brast, Senior Vice President, North America Gas and Power, Direct Energy Business.

Silvia Ortín Rios, Chief Operating Officer Wind Onshore and Solar Photovoltaics Americas of RWE Renewables says: "With this deal, we are demonstrating our extensive capabilities as a leading integrated renewables player ranging from project development, construction, operations to commercialization. The contract with Direct Energy illustrates our expertise in marketing green electricity on the basis of bilateral power purchase agreements. Solar energy is already competitive and decreasing prices for equipment will further drive this development in the long term."

"This PPA demonstrates Direct Energy's unique ability to create long-term 100 percent renewable energy solutions that combine the strengths of our customers, project developers and energy retailers alike," said Lance Henderson, Director, Western Origination, Direct Energy Business.

The long-term contract will start in August 2020. RWE's solar farm will supply an annual production of up to 50,000 MWh of carbon-free energy and environmental attributes to Direct Energy, enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of about 6,500 Canadian homes.
