Recurrent Energy will install 2.3 GWh of energy storage in California over next year
Canadian Solar Subsidiary Returning energy announced new energy storage projects to be built in 2021 and 2022. These projects include retrofit as-a-service, solar and storage PPAs, and stand-alone storage tolling agreements.
- 200-MW/800-MWh Crimson Storage Project for Southern California Edison (SCE) on public lands in Riverside County, approved by the DOI/BLM. The project will be completed in the summer of 2022.
- 72-MW/288-MWh storage addition to 200-MW Tranquility solar project in Fresno County, California. Project under construction.
- 88-MW/352-MWh storage addition to 200-MW Garland solar project in Kern County, California. Project under construction.
- 300-MW solar + 140.25-MW/561-MWh storage Slate project in Kings County, California. Project awaiting start of construction.
- 75-MW/300-MWh storage addition to 100-MW Mustang solar project in Kings County, California. Project awaiting start of construction.
According to recurring estimates, the above energy storage projects will support more than 400 local construction jobs.
“Solar is expected to have another record year in the US, with 23.8 GWDC in new capacity expected to come online in 2021, along with nearly 12 GWh of battery storage, more than doubling the existing capacity,” said dr. Shawn Quo, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “We applaud our customers for their commitment to using cost-effective lithium-ion storage capacity with a minimal carbon footprint to enable a cleaner energy economy and a brighter future. We are excited to continue to provide flexible and reliable clean energy solutions to our customers and the communities we serve around the world the United States.”
