Juniper Creek Concludes the Season of Giving with Community Grant AwardsFeb 09, 2023 12:00AM ● By Juniper Creek Storage Press Release
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - As the giving season comes to a close, the Juniper Creek Energy Storage project is giving back to the community by providing donations to local organizations. With two generous donations, they’re ensuring the community youth are engaged in healthy activities, and that everyone has a full stomach all year long.
The gifts support both the Rancho Cordova Food Locker to join the Rancho Cordova community as they fight against hunger, and the Rancho Cordova Police Department Police Activities League (RCPD PAL) to ensure that Rancho Cordova’s finest are able to serve the community youth with vital skills such as teamwork and sportsmanship.
Keleigh Wright, Juniper Creek Storage Project Developer said: “From all of us at Juniper Creek Energy Storage, we’re happy to support those who work tirelessly to benefit the Rancho Cordova community. We are proud to be working in a vibrant community and it’s important to all of us at Juniper Creek Energy Storage to be a good neighbor and advocate for great work.”
Jose De La Cruz, Executive Director of the Rancho Cordova Police Activities League responded: "With the help of our community partners, such as Vesper Energy, we were able to serve more than 3,500 youth in the community in 2022. Vesper’s support to our youth most in need at the Holiday Run, shows their commitment to our community and it was very much appreciated.”
If approved and built, the Juniper Creek Energy Storage project will benefit the whole community by delivering energy to customers during times of peak demand, when it’s needed most. This project will also create the ability to drastically enhance storage capacity to make the power grid more reliable and resilient overall. It’s one big step in helping Sacramento Municipal Utility District in their goal to deliver a zero-carbon future and prevent the likelihood of local power outages.
