Aliso Canyon SCE Mira Loma Substation – BESS, US

By Carmen

The Aliso Canyon SCE Mira Loma Substation – BESS is a 20,000kW energy storage project located in Ontario, California, US.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2016 and was commissioned in 2016.

Description

The Aliso Canyon SCE Mira Loma Substation – BESS was developed by Swinerton Renewable Energy and Tesla. The project is owned by Southern California Edison (100%), a subsidiary of Edison International.

The key applications of the project are electric supply capacity and peak energy time shift.

Additional information

With a capacity of 20 MW/80 MWh, the project can hold enough energy to power more than 2,500 households for a day, but that’s not really what Southern California Edison is using it for on its grid covering 15 million people. Instead, the system will charge using electricity from the grid during off-peak hours, when demand is low, and then deliver electricity during peak hours to help maintain the reliability and lower SCE’s dependence on natural gas peaker plants.
