Energy Storage News
An eight-hour duration lithium-ion battery project has become the first long-duration energy storage resource selected by a group of non-profit energy suppliers in California.
California Community Power (CC Power), a Joint Powers Agency representing a group of 10 Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) energy suppliers in the state, made the announcement yesterday.
Seven member organisations which are hosting the procurement effort together voted to enter into an energy storage service agreement for the project with its developer, REV Renewables, a subsidiary of LS Power.
The project, called Tumbleweed, will have 69MW output and 552MWh capacity and is expected to come online in 2026. It will be connected to the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) grid.
