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