California Community Power, a joint powers agency of 10 California Community Choice Aggregators (CCAs), has approved a contract for a 50-MW/400-MWh energy storage project in Escondido, California. The eight-hour lithium-ion battery project will be developed by Onward Energy and is expected to come online at the end of 2025.
“The collaboration of California Community Power members has been a tremendous success as we enter into our second long-duration storage agreement,” said Geof Syphers, CC Power Board Chair and Sonoma Clean Power CEO. “This new contract allows the participating members to meet our state-mandated long-duration storage requirements, showing how CCAs are leading the way to advance clean energy in California.”
The Goal Line project adheres to the long-duration storage enhanced conditions adopted by the CC Power Board. It will be constructed under a Project Labor Agreement, assuring prevailing wages and use of apprenticeship programs.
