    AES California solar

    Together, we are accelerating the future of energy in California.

    California has one of the most ambitious clean energy goals in the country and is implementing some of the most innovative technologies on their path to achieving 100% carbon-free power by 2045.  

    Since 1989, AES has been powering California and supporting the state’s grid reliability needs. We are committed to a safe and responsible transition to clean energy in California. Together with our customers and partners, we co-create innovative and sustainable energy solutions, create local jobs and invest in communities.

    Building partnerships to strengthen communities

    We believe in being a good neighbor, ensuring responsible clean energy development that benefits both the environment and local communities. At AES, we understand that our success as a company is only as strong as our partnerships with the communities where we operate. That’s why we partner with communities, customers, state agencies, higher education and elected officials to see how we can best work together to support sustainable social and economic development that complement the local geography and unique culture.

    Building a resilient power grid

    Energy storage is the bridge between a resilient power grid and our clean energy future. AES’ Luna and Lancaster Area Battery (LAB) energy storage facilities are helping California achieve both objectives.  

    “The Luna and LAB Battery Storage projects are two critically important steps in California's safe and reliable energy transition. With these two projects, we are delivering the reliable energy our customers and California's residents need. The Luna and LAB projects demonstrate how we're advancing the state's 2045 zero carbon emissions goal,” said Leo Moreno, AES Clean Energy President. 



    All together with the Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority, TreePeople and Bolsa Chica Conservancy

    AES’s Coastal Enhancement Program is a two-year voluntary environmental benefits program that creates greater access to and restoration of coastal wetlands in Long Beach and Huntington Beach and provides environmental education and stewardship opportunities for youth and families in Southern California. 

    The program offers: 

    • $1 million allocated to Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority for the planning, engineering, restoration and rehabilitation of nearby wetlands, in support of improving access to wetlands for today and future generations.  
    • $500,000 allocated to TreePeople and Bolsa Chica Conservancy to expand environmental education programs and outreach, with a specific focus on youth and families in disadvantaged communities.  

    Preserving the land and creating new opportunities with landowners 

    We understand the importance of protecting farmland and preserving the local environment when developing renewable energy projects. AES seeks opportunities to deliver added value through our best practices in project development to protect the land for future generations. 

    We offer landowners opportunities to tap into new sources of revenue on their land while retaining ownership throughout the entire life of the project. For many, this is a welcome complement to land use and an opportunity to diversify their land investment while hedging against volatile commodity prices. For others, our projects offer an income stream and land-use option where none otherwise existed. 

    Our team and landowners work together, in partnership, from the early stages of site discussions, through permitting, construction and operation. The landowner relationship with AES is built on trust and open communication, ensuring our projects create a long-lasting, positive impact for our landowners and local communities.
