Clean Power Alliance (CPA) has signed its first energy storage agreement (ESA).
The 100-megawatt/400-megawatt-hour standalone lithium-ion battery storage project will be owned and operated by sPower.
“sPower is committed to helping CPA and other CCAs achieve their clean energy future. We operate more than 1,200 MW of solar generation in California and are excited to partner with CPA to add new energy storage to the supply mix,” said Hans Isern, senior vice president of power marketing, sPower.
The $100 million project is expected to be operational by August 2021. It will allow renewable energy resources to be integrated into the grid.
Ted Bardacke, executive director of Clean Power Alliance, said: “Clean Power Alliance is excited to be advancing our clean energy goals during this difficult time. By fast tracking projects like Luna Storage, we are fighting climate change while investing in our community and creating jobs right when they are needed the most.”
