San Diego Gas & Electric Lithium Ion Battery Storage Facility Tour
San Diego Gas & Electric is committed to incorporating technologies that increase the amount of sustainable energy delivered to its customers to power their homes and businesses. In February 2017, SDG&E unveiled, what was then, the world’s largest lithium-ion battery energy storage facility in partnership with AES Energy Storage. The 30-MW facility enhances regional energy reliability while maximizing renewable energy use, and can store up to 120 megawatt hours of energy, the energy equivalent of serving 20,000 customers for four hours.
Since March, the battery facility has been bid into the day ahead and real-time markets and dispatched by California’s power grid operator to meet energy needs.
