Ingeteam supplies battery inverters to 20-MW California ISO project

lngeteam has announced it has supplied its battery inverters for the Johanna 1 & 2 energy storage projects in Santa Ana, California. Owned and operated by Hecate Energy, this 20 MW/80 MWh grid-connected project was built by Mitsubishi Power.

The Johanna ESS is equipped with LFP batteries to collect energy for four hours. It is part of a pivotal project integrating renewable energy into the California Independent System Operator grid to validate distributed energy resource (DER) capacity assumptions, study network requirements, and develop technology expertise for large-scale DER implementation. The multi-year study will determine whether clean distributed energy can offset the increasing demand for electricity in central Orange County.

“We are very pleased to have partnered with Hecate Energy and Mitsubishi Power on this landmark project,” said Nohra Nasr, VP and General Manager of Solar PV and BESS at Ingeteam Inc. “They have extensive experience in utility-scale energy storage projects, so we’re excited to partner with them with our long experience in the power electronics industry to support California’s efforts to advance in clean energy technologies.”

For this project, Ingeteam supplied 20 INGECON SUN STORAGE 1245TL U B480 inverters. These inverters are equipped with 1,500 VDC technology and will develop grid support functionalities, such as frequency control.
