Regulators Approve Five Grid-Scale Lithium-Ion Battery Projects for Southern California

Regulators in California gave San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) approval to move forward with development of five grid-scale lithium-ion battery projects in San Diego and Orange counties.

The five projects will deliver a total of 83.5 MW/334 MWh to SDG&E’s energy storage portfolio. SDG&E submitted the projects to the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) in April 2017.

According to SDG&E, the projects include:

  • A 30-MW/120-MWh lithium-ion battery storage facility in San Diego, Calif., that will be built by Renewable Energy Systems (RES) America and will be completed by December 2019
  • A 4-MW/16-MWh lithium-ion battery storage facility in San Juan Capistrano, Calif, that will be built by Advanced Microgrid Solutions and will be completed by December 2019
  • A 40-MW/160-MWh lithium-ion battery facility in Fallbrook, Calif., that will be built by Fluence and will be completed by March 2021
  • A 6.5-MW/26-MWh lithium-ion battery storage facility in Escondido, Calif., that will be built by Powin Energy and will be completed by June 2021
  • A 3-MW/12-MWh lithium-ion battery storage facility in Poway, Calif., that will be built by Enel Green Power and will be completed by December 2021

The PUC also approved a demand response program equaling 4.5 MW. OhmConnect will provide the demand response service.
