L.A approves largest solar and storage system in the US

Posted On November 8th, 2019 - 11:31 am | by Oil and gas press

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti is the new chair of C40, a coalition of 94 global city mayors who have committed to a Green New Deal and are recognizing the climate crisis.

According to the mayor’s website:

Eric Garcetti announced unanimous City Council approval of power purchase agreements for the Eland Solar and Storage Center — the largest solar and battery energy storage system in the United States.

The Eland Solar and Storage Center will help Los Angeles reach 55% renewable energy by 2025, 80% renewable energy by 2036, and 100% renewable energy by 2045.

The Eland Solar and Storage Center will be LADWP’s [Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s] first utility-scale, integrated solar and battery project engineered to provide fully dispatchable power to customers in the evening and night time hours — reducing reliance on natural gas when renewable energy is unavailable.

The center is located on 2,650 acres in Kern County, California. It will include two solar facilities that will capture 400 MW of solar energy and store up to 1,200 MWh of energy. The site will be capable of powering 283,330 homes across Los Angeles.

The project will create 700 jobs over the 14-month construction period and employ 40 operations and maintenance staff once it’s up and running.
