Located in Escondido, Calif., the 30 MW facility is capable of storing up to 120 MWh of energy, the energy equivalent of serving 20,000 customers for four hours. SDG&E says the facility’s 400,000 batteries, similar to those in electric vehicles, were installed in nearly 20,000 modules and placed in 24 containers. The batteries will act like a sponge, soaking up and storing energy when it is abundant – when the sun is shining, the wind is blowing and energy use is low – and releasing it when energy resources are in high demand. This will provide reliable energy when customers need it most and maximize the use of renewable resources, such as solar and wind, the utility adds. Last year, the California...
