The Company has been closely monitoring the bankruptcy filing of Pacific Gas and Electric Company ("PG&E"). Potential outcomes are dependent upon a variety of factors, including future decisions of PG&E, the bankruptcy court, the investment community, and other stakeholders. Consequently, the Company can only provide a preliminary assessment of its potential exposure.
The Company does not have material exposure with respect to previously sold projects. It does, however, have potential exposure with respect to 60 MWac of power purchase agreements with PG&E for a portion of the Gaskell West 2 project, which is planned to reach commercial operation in 2020. These power purchase agreements were executed in late 2017 at very competitive prices. Further, the Company has potential exposure with respect to interconnection agreements with PG&E including an early to mid-stage development project and the late-stage Slate project, which together total approximately 700 MWac. Based on current information, the planned commercial operation dates have not been impacted for any projects in the Company's pipeline. The Company will provide a further update, as possible, in its fourth quarter and full year 2018 earnings conference call.
