General Electric largest energy storage project in California
General Electric (GE) will provide Coachella Energy Storage Partners with a 30 MW battery contract.
The plant will be located in California’s Imperia Valley.
The Facility will aid grid flexibility and increase reliability on the IID network by providing solar ramping, frequency regulation, power balancing and black start capability for an adjacent gas turbine.
The construction starts early 2016 and will be operational in the autumn of 2016.
GE will provide an integrated energy storage solution, using
- Mark VI plant controls
- Brilliance MW inverters
- Prolec transformers
- medium-voltage switchgear
- lithium-ion batteries housed in a GE purpose-built enclosure
The plant will be operated by ZGlobal, for the first 18 months after which control will be transferred to the IDD.
This project is a game charger to the energy industry and will be one of the largest battery storage plants in the west of the USA. This is a full system performance, allowing customers to match power production with demand in real time and utilize grid assets more efficiently.
