The Eldorado Valley Project-Battery Energy Storage System is a 60,000kW energy storage project located in California, US.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2020 and will be commissioned in 2022.
The Eldorado Valley Project-Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by 174 Power Global and Hanwha.
The key application of the project is grid stability.
174 Power Global and Hanwha are the developer of Eldorado Valley Project-Battery Energy Storage System.
The projects is part of Southern California Edison‘s 590 Megawatts of New Energy Storage Capacity. Southern California Edison has signed long-term contracts for four projects totaling 590 MW of battery energy storage resources. Three of the four projects are utility-scale projects totaling 585 MW and will take advantage of lithium-ion batteries that can store energy for use later.
