Grid-linked battery storage center proposed for Oceanside industrial area

The San Diego Union-Tribue

A renewable energy company has proposed building a 250-megawatt battery storage facility in Oceanside that would collect electricity during peak production hours and return it to the grid later in the day.

“It’s an exciting and important project that would support the City of Oceanside’s climate action plan as well as the Clean Energy Alliance’s procurement plan,” said Nathan Murdock, director of business development for REV Renewables Development, in an email Thursday.

San Diego County’s only other community choice energy program, San Diego Community Power, buys electricity for San Diego and five other cities and some unincorporated areas. San Diego Community Power has signed deals with companies to build three battery facilities, one in Chula Vista and two more outside the county.
