Project Description

The proposed project is a 100-megawatt-hour (MWh) (25-MW / 4h discharge) Battery Storage System (BSS). To meet the accelerated project timeline laid out in  California Energy Commission (CEC) Order No: 21-0908-2 responding to the Governor's Energy Emergency Proclamation of July 30, 2021, Diamond Generating LLC has partnered with Mitsubishi Power Americas, Inc. (Mitsubishi Power) to guarantee BSS supply. Mitsubishi Power will supply full design and turnkey Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) of the BSS, including a battery management system and an energy dispatch management system for a fully functional project up to the utility point of  connection. The project has site control and can be fully constructed and ready to be online by October 31, 2022. Ability to meet this date is contingent on implementation of an expedited interconnection process as well as the CEC issuing a license pursuant to Order No: 21-0908-2.
