    Peninsula Clean Energy locks 45-MW battery storage deal

    May 19, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 19 (Renewables Now) - California-based community choice power aggregator Peninsula Clean Energy has clinched a deal enabling it to receive the capacity attributes from a 45-MW battery energy storage project in its home state’s San Bernardino County.

      The 15-year contract concerns a project being developed by US independent renewable energy provider Terra-Gen LLC, Peninsula Clean Energy said on Thursday.

      The specific scheme includes the installation of a lithium-ion facility that will be capable of providing four hours of storage capacity. To be located near Barstow, it will be part of the redevelopment of an existing solar thermal site and is expected to go online in June 2024.

      The PPA supports Peninsula Clean Energy’s goal of delivering 24/7 renewable energy to its customers and meeting its regulatory obligations to provide new capacity that enhances the reliability of the grid.

      “Battery storage is a critical component of our strategy and allows us to take the lead among all utilities in demonstrating it is possible to provide hourly renewable energy in a cost-effective way,” said CEO Jan Pepper.

      At the start of this year, Peninsula Clean Energy signed four contracts to procure electricity from close to 68 MW of renewables for a round-the-clock supply to its customers in San Mateo County and the City of Los Banos.
