Our Innovative Solar Plus Battery Storage Project Is Now Operating!
We are happy to announce that our first investment in new renewable energy, an innovative solar plus battery storage project in Kern County, is now producing power. This project was built by developer Terra-Gen at Edwards Air Force Base with union labor. It guarantees delivery of 62 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy every day between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. That means clean energy seven days a week for 16 hours each day, hence “7×16!” By providing renewable energy during the evening hours when demand is high and the California grid needs it the most, the project will help:
- Make the California grid more reliable,
- Reduce the need for natural gas peaker plants,
- Reduce air pollution, and
- Fight climate change.
