By Carmen

The California Convergent – BESS is a 35,000kW energy storage project located in Orange County, California, US. The rated storage capacity of the project is 140,000kWh.

The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2016 and will be commissioned in 2021.

The California Convergent – BESS is being developed by Convergent Energy and Power. The project is owned by Southern California Edison (100%), a subsidiary of Edison International.

The key application of the project is electric supply capacity.

Contractors involved

Southern California Edison is the owner. Convergent Energy and Power is the developer.

Additional information

The project was approved by Southern California Edison as part of SCE’s competitive Preferred Resources Pilot solicitation, a program designed to meet local demand through clean energy resources. SCE recognizes the ability of energy storage to address multiple grid constraints and challenges in cleaner, more responsive and cost-effective ways. Convergent successfully proposed to provide four hours of continuous discharge capability for peak shaving and grid balancing services in southern Orange County, an area with significant load growth that was also impacted by the recent retirement of the San Onofre nuclear plant.
